How to use the vinegar pot
Soak the cork and faucet in warm water for 20 minutes. Push the cork in the pot hole to the maximun and install the faucet.
Preparation of the "mother" vinegar
The easiest way is to get yourself a piece of the "mother" deposit that forms during the fermentation of wine.
For the fabrication of a mother, leave 1 to 2 glasses of organic wine vinegar (without sulfites) in an open bottle for about a month. Cover with cheesecloth to protect from fruit flies. You will get a mother for making vinegar.
Preparation of the vinegar
Pour two liters of good red or white wine in the vinegar pot, gently put the mother on the surface and wait for two months. Vinegar can then be withdrawn. Just add wine to it as is needed. The remainder of your wine bottles will be perfect.
Preferably place the vinegar pot in a cool place.
