This red wine mother of vinegar is perfect for making up to 1 quart (32 oz.) of red wine vinegar. Directions: Add 8 oz. of mother of vinegar and 8 oz. of water to 16 oz. of red wine to make 32 oz. (1 qt.) of vinegar. Place in glass, wood, or food safe HDPE plastic with a removable top or holes allowing for aeration. Cover holes or open top with cheesecloth or gauze to prevent insect infestation. Allow to sit 6-12 weeks. Best growth is in temperatures of 80-85 degrees Fahrenheit. You can reuse the new mother that grows on the top of your vinegar. The mother may sink, but will regrow over time until done. As the mother gets larger and larger, it will make vinegar faster and/or accommodate larger batches.

If you want to use wines that have sulfites, you must neutralize them with a teaspoon of hydrogen peroxide. Vinegar production is sped up by exposing the inoculated wine to oxygen.
