| Checking in on the LENNDEVOURS Cabernet Franc Vines »
Just a quick picture update on my vinegar making endeavour. Here I am pulling a thick slab of cellulose off of the first batch, which is a combination of merlot and cabernet sauvignon from the North Fork of Long Island AVA.

Melissa finds the "de-cellulosing" a nasty process, since the sheet is so slimy. I find it fascinating to see cellulose's cross-connecting capabilities at work. It's a tough material when you get a thick sheet of it.

It sure is...I tried to push a hole in it with my fingers...but couldn't easily.
And yes...my mom and wife agreed that it was pretty nasty...I think they said it look like a human liver or some other organ.

Was the bottle from Lieb left in the background as a hint regarding this vinegar's origin? Or is that your traditional "removing the cellulose" drink around the "Lenn" kitchen?

Ha...that's actually an empty bottle of Pellegrini's second label merlot -- not the Bridge Lane merlot from Lieb. My parents drank most of it before I got home...and then I poured what was left in just before de-cellulosing the vinegar :)

Looks interesting. I just started making vinegar, and that's what I got too. Is this correct? What did you do once you removed it? Is that layer of cellulose also called "the mother", or is that something else?
