I make cleaning vinegar, putting citrus rinds in purchased white vinegar (normal stuff, i don't have the bottle but I assume around 3 or 4% acidity). I put it in a jar and throw it under the sink for 6 months or so.

I found the jar today and it has a beautiful snow-white scoby on top (much prettier than my kombucha scobies ever got). This is not the mother of vinegar from making vinegar (I have that too), this is def a scoby.
I also happen to have a jar of kombucha with a dead scoby (or very sad, I haven't tried to rescuscitate it yet. It may have died from neglect, don't call the booch police on me.).

Can I take this scoby and try to use it with booch? Or is there something better to do with it?
The citrus was almost certainly unwashed and local, I can recognize some of the lemons from my aunt's yard, so I am assuming it's got a good contingent of yeasts.
Thanks!

three weeks later, i used it to get a pot of kombucha going. I am starting to realize i have a bit of a yeast imbalance in my other kombucha, and the difference between the two is fabulous. (now to keep that yeast down, going into summer)
 
It wasn't my idea to go to some crazy nightclub in the middle of nowhere. I just wanted to stay home and cuddle with this tiny ad:
