I just got a vinegar jar and can't wait to start making the stuff. I know it's possible to use unfiltered vinegar as a starter (many have recommended Bragg's apple cider vinegar available at health food stores) or order the "mother" from sources online. But I would love to find a local, down-home source.
In other words, does anybody out there (Brooklyn-based, but all boroughs considered) have some "mother" to spare? Or ideas for local sources?
