Thanks!

Maybe my reply is little off-topic, but have you tried home-made vinegar made by bacteria ?
"ethanol vinegar" from low-end wine, etc.  You can get up to 8% concentration of vinegar, then you can concentrate it.
But forget about p.a. substance quality ;-)

Glacial acetic acid is vinegar, just don't drink it as it's too strong.
Most Common Suggestions I Make on the Forums.
1. Start by writing a balanced chemical equation.
2. Don't confuse thermodynamic stability with chemical reactivity.
3. Forum Supports LaTex

The WIKI for Acetic acid
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Acetic_acid
states
Quote
About 75% of acetic acid made for use in the chemical industry is made by the carbonylation of methanol

It seems odd to me that one would want to take
organic coconut vinegar
which already has Acetic acid (4 - 10%)
and adulterate it with a manufactured Glacial acetic acid that could potentially have trace stuff not normally found in biologically made vinegar.

Also stated in the WIKI

The biological route accounts for only about 10% of world production, but it remains important for the production of vinegar because many food purity laws require vinegar used in foods to be of biological origin.
