    Default supply source

    I'm brand new to this idea, not really wanting to make mead but honey vinegar. I've read the books and articles, now I'm looking for a good, wholesale supply house to buy specific yeasts, Mother, etc.

    Anyone have any favorites?

    I use my local brew shop but here are a few listings.

    Just go buy a bottle of non-pasteurized, quality vinegar from a grocer. There'll be a modest-sized mother in there but may be hard to see. I'm not sure you can make vinegar without making mead first; I think the acetobacter needs a fermented beverage unless there's a workaround...

    Grant,
    I like midwest supplies (www.midwestsupplies.com/). Prices and service are very good. Get a catalog from them...should have everything that you would want.

    Thanks. I looked locally for a "brew shop" and there is none locally. My game plan was to make mead, then add the Mother to make honey vinegar.

    Then today, this article came out in our local newspaper about a church group brewing beer. I'll make contact with these guys as they probably know where to get some stuff.
