Cider Vinegar

  • Andrew G. H. Lea


The available literature on vinegar production is not extensive, and consists primarily of a handful of review articles and book chapters. Among these are Smock (1950), Vaughn (1954), Joslyn (1970), Conner and Allgeier (1976), Greenshields (1978), Nickol (1979), Ebner (1982), Ebner and Follmann (1983a, b), Webb (1983), and Adams (1985). In most cases the coverage comprises the whole field of vinegar production, not just that from ciders, and lays particular emphasis on the microbiological aspects of acetification.
