And Paul when my hair was brown - sadly no longer! - I used to use vinegar with rosemary as a rinse. The rosemary is also vv good for conditioning. you need to boil it in a bit of vinegar and then mix with raw Kombucha vinegar I suppose. I fear that now it might just make my hair look as though I was such a heavy smoker that the nicotine had stained my hair..
Thanks for this and I shall get some ph test strips. Does anyone know what ph normal vinegar is?. I have test strips for the Kombucha itself but those only go down to 2.5 which is practically drinkable Kombucha. Re salt; I am trying to cut down the salt I eat so would rather not add much more but the chutneys have quite a bit of sugar in them so that should also help with the preserving.

I'd probably just taste it and compare. Other solutions: - pH test strip - mix half and half kombucha vinegar with normal vinegar to do your pickling. Surely the necessary acidity won't be too far off - add some salt to the kombucha vinegar to aid the pickling process
I have been away quite a bit recently and decided to let my continuous ferment Kombucha turn to vinegar. Does anybody know how to test the acidity of the vinegar? I want to know if it is strong enough to preserve vegetables.
