Making wine vinegar

Nyleve | Jul 20, 2013 02:50 PM

So I seem to have successfully made some red wine vinegar. Probably have about a quart or so in the jar that has been brewing for 3 or 4 months. I'm looking for advice on how to know when it's ready - just taste? And then what? Strain (filter) and bottle? I have made maple vinegar (excellent stuff!) and I just waited until it tasted vinegarish and then ran it through a coffee filter and bottled it. Is it basically the same process with wine vinegar? I didn't do any further processing with the maple vinegar so I assume it doesn't need it. No one has died yet. From my vinegar, I mean.
