    Default Honey vinegar

    Here is my latest product. It seemed appropriate to post it in this forum.

    great label.....how big of a bottle is that and what do you plan on selling them for........I have a 6 gallon batch of sourwood mead that is about 8% alcohol..... do you think I could add a little mother from some apple cider vinegar and turn it to vinegar?........

    Thanks. My ‘marketing manager’ (fiance) designed it.

    It’s 5 fl oz. The marketing manager and I are still haggling about the price. It’ll be somewhere between $4 and $6.

    If you’d rather have 6 gallons of vinegar.

    well I went kind of crazy with my mead making this year so I have 30 gallons of mead aging right now that I cant legally sell, and it will take me awhile to drink all of that I am thinking of turning some of that into something I can legally sell!(sure cant turn it back into the 80 lbs of honey I harvested)
    P.S. I checked out your website and I am a big fan!
    I just recently got CNG certified so if your ever in east TN I would love for you to come inspect my apiary(finding someone to come inspect seems to be the hardest part of the whole process!)

    Be careful if you plan to sell it or, I suppose, even if you plan to consume it yourself. It needs to be 5% acetic acid. If it’s below about 4.5% it may be illegal to sell (and may spoil). If it is much above 5.5% it can be unpalatable.

    Guess who designed that?

    It surely was a chore. A local farmers’ market requires it….so I went ahead a ‘bit the bullet’.

    so I guess with an 8% alcohol mead I will have to dilute a little to get 5% acetic acid?
    should I dilute befor or after I add the mother?
    and how long do you age your honey vinegar?
    from what little I have read so far it seems like it will take 6 to 8 weeks for the mother to convert all of the alcohol to acetic acid.
    soory to hound you.... I guess I should go buy a book on vinegar making
    thanks for the info
    P.S. I go down to lula to visit don pretty often(looks like your pretty close), let me know if you are ever in need of a CNG inspection.
