Also Known as
Malt Vinegar

Brown Vinegar is made by malting barley causing the starch in the grain to turn to maltose. Ale is then brewed from the maltose and allowed to turn into vinegar, which is then aged. It is typically distinctive dark brown colour. However, most supermarket vinegar is actually extracted from beetroot. It has a strong flavour. As its name implies, malt vinegar has a distinctive malt flavor.
