Sometimes the vinegar I have on hand has gone cloudy or a skin has formed on/in it. Is it still okay to use it?

If it smells okay, just skim it off. The scum or film just means that the chemical processes that made it vinegar in the first place are still active. ;o)

Thanks AJ! I was just wondering the same thing the other day ...
Thanks indeed AJ!
Fresh fresh fresh for sure. If you're cooking with it that's fine but as a finish you should only be using newer vinegar and a good 1+ year old one at that.
