Where to find vinegar mother in Seattle?

I know I can get a vinegar mother online, but thought I'd try for somewhere local first. A search of the boards didn't turn up anything. Any suggestions?

  1. Have you tried this?
    I love the Yahoo directions from my house include 727 miles on I-5.

    1. I don't know where to buy locally, but my father in law gave me a bottle of "mother" some time ago. I've been adding wine to it, leaving it in my cupboard, and now it seems as if I've created some kind of a science experiment. I have layers of mothers in this bottle and I cannot possibly use that much vinegar in my life. Does one just use the liquid as the mother?

      You would be welcome to have some of mine. I uploaded a photo.

      1. re: seagrace

        What do you do to keep the mother alive?

        I have a mother of vinegar from my white wine vinegar experiment. It would a shame to flush it now that I'm done.

      2. this photo may be better, although it's kind of creepy looking

        1. I believe Cellar has it, and I would imagine Bob's Homebrew would have it too.


          1. As mentioned, you can try brewing supply stores.

            Another alternative is to use raw, unfiltered apple cider. I've used Bragg's (from the local health food store) with success at making white wine vinegar.
