Totally missed reading the wine part in white wine vinegar. So yes, if vinegar is used I’d only recommend what pedant said “distilled vinegar aka white vinegar” to avoid having organic compounds lead to mold. I’ll clarify that by adding to the original post in this topic.

@pedant @Victoria

Essigessenz is available where I live but it's very strong. I'll buy this and mix it with much water. Thanks for the advice :) My white wine vinegar has 5% acid but you are right it's not synthetic like Essigessenz.

...bought this one today. It's "Essig-Essenz" made from brandy (and not wine). Don't know if this is better, but that's the one my supermarket had in stock. :lol: I'm going to try this now.
