Is it possible to make sherry vinegar at home and if so, how? I've made champagne vinegar, white and red wine vinegars and cider vinegar, so I know the basic technique, at least for those. But what about sherry? Does the fact that it's made differently from other wines affect its suitability for home vinegar making? Thank you. ;o)

I don't have an answer for you, AntoniaJames, but if you wouldn't mind sharing your vinegar-making techniques, I'd LOVE to know how to make them! (hope someone else has a more helpful answer for you) :)

I wish I had better news, but according to wiki-answers, it's nearly impossible.

I think sherry vinegar would be hard- but I think you can make apple cider vinegar using a mother or starter culture. I'd use google-fu to find a website that sells cultures and has information on making vinegar reliably.

I've looked online to find an answer to this question, but the results were fruitless. I've made vinegar for years, but never considered making Sherry Vinegar until I could not find it in any stores or specialty shops in my area.

Today, I made two Sherry Vinegar starters. Each one has 2/3 cup Acetum Organic White Wine vinegar with mother. To the first I added 2/3 cup Taylor's Dry sherry and to the second starter I added 2/3 cup Fairbank's Cream Sherry.

I could not find any references to which style Sherry to use and had these in the cabinet. If I had my druthers, I'd of use the same name brand of each type. I also found references to other methods and ingredients to create "instant gratification" use Sherry vinegar, but I thought these were odd and returned to the methods that I know.

Making vinegar takes several weeks and I will add an addendum after I have tried each; neat, in a vinaigrette, and reduced then served on a pasta. I will entertain other suggested uses.

Its been 3 months since I posted that I made Sherry Vinegar starters from Apple Cider Mother and an equal part of Dry or Cream Sherry(ies). The Dry Sherry vinegar has mellowed and is very nice. Its counterpart remains a bit harsh, I will keep it for 3 to six additional months before giving up on it. I would make it again, but in much larger quantities, maybe a liter of each part.
