    Vinegar usually means they got infected with a acetic acid-producing bacteria. You can't really
    get rid of it from these batches, just pay more attention to sanitation next time.

    The problem with recirculating the water is that the water coming out of the chiller has
    absorbed all the energy and is really hot. You will need A LOT of ice if you plan on
