in thread I usually boil water for tea using a(n) ...

Any reason for malt vinegar instead of white vinegar? We use white vinegar for that sort of thing, and for many other cleaning uses.

Also found a recipe for making pancakes that included how to 'fake' buttermilk...something like a teaspoon (or tablespoon?) of vinegar in milk, then let it sit a few minutes.

    Beyond the fact that malt vinegar seems to be substantially cheaper than spirit vinegar, no.

    'fake' buttermilk

    I think my wife uses something similar -- using lemon juice instead of vinegar -- for making scones.

      Interesting...I find the opposite to be true..a gallon of distilled white vinegar is around $5-6, and only a pint of malt vinegar is about the same.

    In the UK, malt vinegar is extremely easy to come by and cheap in larger containers. Large quantities of white vinegar, on the other hand, are expensive.

    In the US, it's the other way around. I guess Americans don't fully appreciate the wonders of chips with salt 'n' (malt) vinegar...
