    i am a 3 terms punong brgy.(san jose) city proper iloilo city since being elected in 2002 it was may project of using cocowater which being thrown away(my brgy. is located in front of the terminal market) cocowater if thrown away becomes a pullutant .i acquire info from DOST, the formula is very simple.(25 litter of cocowater plus 5kilo “central” sugar plus i table spoon baker yeast) observe sanitation ,,,,filter the acquire cocowater from the source….ferment it for 5 days .(the solutions becomes coco wine(10% alcohol) the one being called by people in samar &bohol as bahalina.
    transfer the solution to another container, throw away the sediments(these are dead yeast.)cover the container with muslin clouth(catcha)to prevent fruit fly bringing unwanted microbes. of course the first time you do it it will take some times becouse you did not introduce mother vinegar.(but then you will have your very own mother vinegar.maybe 2&1/2 months, the next batch one month na lang . if you are in a hurry see DOST they have a technology to produce vinegar in one week. (why be in a hurry learn the basic first ) besides you will invest a lot of money. if you are interested i can also teach you how to do it.
    My email add is or you can contact me at 09176323326 for more info. if you want to have hands on experience you are welcome to Iloilo.

  29. ummer kutty says:

  34. frenie r demafeliz says:

    I want to learn more about this one I have lots resources

  35. antonio coo says:

    We do not need mother vinegar to produce vinegar!producing vinegar is a 2step process. First coco water plus sugar(for every 10 litter of coco water add 1 kilo sugar) add 1 tea spoon of bread yeast wait for 10 days. Then transfer to the next container. The act of transfering the alcoholic solution when transfer incourporate air into the solution the vinegar microb in the atmosphere will just follow to the a month time you have vinegar. I been doing this for 12 years.with 50 drums of vinegar.Mother vinegar i do not need.
