    I have trouble getting my hands on a starter culture of vinegar eels... is there any way to get vinegar eels without the starter culture? like if i use a piece of apple inside non pasteurized apple cider vinegar? any way those littles eels might magically appears? i ve read some people got those 'unwanted' guests in their kombucha.. (should i try groing kombucha hoping to get eels? lolol love tea anyway :p )

    Thanks for helping! *^-^*

    Check out this site. Has good instructions but haven't tried myself. Seems easy enough!

    Seriously, Kombucha? Well, I looked it up and wow. So that's how vinegar is made.

    Sounds like there is a gap in the market
    If you do get a culture going you could make a bit of money selling starter cultures.

    I have around 3 litres of the culture already, but never thought to try starting one from scratch.

    I used organic unpasteurized cider vinegar with the starter culture I received; it works well.
