I recently found a very old bottle of cider vinegar in my cellar and in it is what appears to be a naturally occurring mother culture. I am very interested to try this culture out but am worried that it may not be safe to use.

The vinegar has taken on quite a sweet smell and is reasonably pleasant to drink.

What does the community have to say? Has anyone used such a culture before?

Might not make kombucha though, but more vinegar.

From what I've read an analysis of Mother of vinegar and your typical KT SCOBY are biologically identical. That said, not all SCOBYs are the same. I'd be interested in learning how it goes.
Tap: DIPA, oaked Baltic porter, XXX pale ale, dark IPA

Bottle: vanilla kombucha, oaked puh-er kombucha, blueberry kombucha,

Primary: rose hip kombucha, oaked honey and oolong kombucha, hopped kombucha brewed with green tea infused with cab. grapes
