    You don't want to overdo any of the flavours & if you don't like Juniper, leave it out for sure

    Hi British Red. Can I ask a question please? You mentioned in the video something about the different kinds of malt vinegar. I'm about to buy a gallon as I always do of the brown malt non brewed but I think you said something about this not being the best for pickling as it is acetic acid and caramel. I noticed that is what it said on the container . I've always used it but I'm always looking to improve the produce I make.
    Sadly I'm about to run out of Internet on my phone. . My only access to you tube and it uses it like crazy.
    Would you recommend I hold off and buy something else or use it anyway. Thanks

    NBC does work but if you look for "malt vinegar" its very cheap in most supermarkets!

    I am REALLY sorry, but it's been a very bad day....
    From a "previous life" I recall "NBC" being "Nuclear, Biological and Chemical (warfare)" - nuke the onions ?
    Again, sincere apologies
    Simon

    Its explained in the video Simon. NBC is an acronym for Non Brewed Condiment. Its made from acetic acid, caramel and water. In effect its synthetic vinegar.
