Sorry I am new on this forum.
I am studying the fermentation of vinegar from alcohol and I don't understand how to start the process. So far I understood I need to mix the mother of vinegar with alcohol. My doubt is: if I have to produce a 10%vinegar I need to use 10% alcohol but I know bacteria can grow at maximum of 6% alcohol. how much alcohol, bacteria and water I have to mix together? Do I have to add acetic acid to start it?

I did GOOGLE of

vinegar production
and got lots of hits.
Some of the hits are overviews of production and it appears that first step is using lower percent and later distilling to higher. Sometimes the higher is diluted back to a desired level.

If that would be the case wine would never go sour.

It does.
