iLabs: Vinegar Experiment Weekly Update

July 6, 2012

Just a report on our Vinegar Experiment — Our experiment started on June 11th with three bottles of unpasteurized, unfiltered apple cider vinegar.  As of today, July 6, I can report there are still no vinegar eels present in the vinegar. So at least one week shy of a month, our vinegar bottles (both in the light and in the dark) remain free of “swimming nematodes.”

I have been trying to find any research or info on the web related to the following questions:

1) Do vinegar eel larvae encyst and become airborne?

2) Is that how vinegar eels get into the apple cider vinegar in the first place?

3) How long does it take an open bottle of apple cider vinegar to have live, swimming vinegar eels

I have had no luck so far finding any info, one of the reasons we are doing this experiment…..I am also thinking it may be time to contact a scientist at a vinegar manufacturer or a nematode researcher to learn more about all of this. Stay tuned for future updates.
