We've taken to using spent bourbon bottles to mix and bubble our vinegars. Today we started sweet vermouth vinegar. We blended 1000 grams of sweet vermouth and 800 grams of our Everywine Vinegar in the bottle. Then we put the tube from an aquarium bubbler into the bottle. We plugged in the bubbler and now we wait. Only we will not be waiting for weeks. The constant aeration should help the acetobactors consume the alcohol and convert it into vinegar. By week's end we should be tasting finished sweet vermouth vinegar. From there we will explore where to take it.
