That's a really good question! I'm thinking at least a pint. So, probably fill a quart jar with the garlic and vinegar, that way when you take out the garlic, there's at least a pint.

Here is some of it next to the vinegar.  I found the purple skinned type because one of the references said that was best.

Made Garlic infusion in vinegar for the BB here.


Garlic page in Journal


Garlic Infusion page in Journal


Garlic (organic)


German apple vinegar, Demeter quality, so it's Biodynamic


Cloves of garlic put in a jar with vinegar. Then it stood for several weeks in a dark quiet cool place.


Then I sifted out the garlic and put the vinegar infusion in a clean jar.


And here it is. It says (in Dutch): Garlic in vinegar.
