Organic Red Wine Vinegar Mother
An organic red wine vinegar mother is very versatile and has a number of uses. It carries all the benefits that red wine has without the alcohol content. Raw, unpasteurised organic red wine vinegar has become difficult to source due to the popularity of pasteurising vinegar to make it clear and more attractive to the consumer. Sadly, that process kills the beneficial bacteria that helped make the vinegar to begin with. We recommend anyone using red wine vinegar to make their own, raw, unpasteurised versions at home. It can be a great use for corked, unwanted red wine.
Organic red wine vinegar is very easy to make. We sell raw, unpasteurised red wine vinegar starters which include the mother. From our starter mothers you will be able to make a lifetimes supply of organic red wine vinegar.
An organic red wine vinegar mother is a complex structure of bacteria and acetic acids. It looks similar to a Kombucha Scoby and forms in the same way. Raw, unpasteurised vinegars have a murky appearance and still contain parts of the mother culture. The bacteria continue to form new mothers even after the initial mother used has been removed.
