Starting Bourbon vinegar

Let’s go back to a safe topic, vinegar.   I started some new vinegars this weekend.  On the left is the bourbon vinegar.  The bottle of Jim Bean Maple said it was 70 proof so 35% ABV.  It was a 750 ml bottle so I added four cups of water (~ 1 liter) to drive the ABV down.  It should be about 12% or so.  I may need to cut it further.  The bacteria should be able to deal with less than 20% ABV but they really like it below 10%.    The middle one is an Orange Pale Ale.  The mother is floating.  That is always a good sign.  The right is a sake.  I added the same volume of water as the sake.  Should be around 8% ABV.
