      Distilled vinegar is bacteria free where as cider and wine vinegars may contain bacteria. You see, the distilled type (which isn't really distilled) has been processed to kill the bacteria.

      Scott,

      Thanks for sharing your "Glenmoranie" recipe.

      Just one word of caution ... "I added vinegar to my wash to bring down the
      PH"

      You probably don't want to use vinegar to do this. There's a chance that it
      may still contain the bacteria used to make it, and you'll convert all your
      carefully made alcohol to vinegar. It could also infect your equipment, so
      that future batches will also do likewise.  The sort of problem you want to
      avoid.

      See about using other acids instead - eg Scott "yldog" uses hydrocholoric
      acid, or if you want to stick to "kitchen" ingredients, theres citric and
      tartaric acids (though probably not so concentrated - need more to be
      effective)
