Vinegar questions - white vinegar, does it matter?

rworange | Dec 8, 2007 01:15 PM

I have bushels of oranges in my back yard and am considering making orange vinegar. Never made any flavored vinegar before so I need some advice.

A local store had a gallon of white vinegar for $1.99. Should I buy it? Is there any significant difference in white vinegar? Anything to be afraid of?

For people who make their own flavored vinegar, are there any problems in the process? Any advice to avoid goofing would be welcome.

Can I start with other vinegars other than white?

What are some other good vinegars to make? This just appeals to me currently ... if it is simple enough.
