Thanks Mr. V!

I actually just started my very first VE culture today.
I got it off aquabid for $3 (free shipping).

I was on the fence about adding the apple slices, but I decided I would (as per your suggestion.)

I added

1/4 of an apple chopped into half inch cubes
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup aged water
1/4 cup apple juice

(makes for a great salad dressing recipe too!)

I guess anything other than distilled is ok.

Do you need to add apple slices?

Does it really help? Or just make it messy in the long run?
I do not use apples, and still the vinegar eels multiply in such an exponential rate that they climb up to the bottle necks! My cultures produce so much VEs i do not know what to do with them all. IMO, apple slices in the coco-vinegar will spoil it. Even a little water spoils it.

I live in south east asia and coconut vinegar is a must in culinary recipes here, so they are very easy to find and purchase. I you live in the west, it seems like apple cider is easier to find.
