I've taken only a couple university chemistry courses. In the lab, when we always used acetic acid in powdered form, it struck me how when buying vinegar in a bottle from the store, you must be paying mostly only to transport water. Wouldn't it be more economic to simply mix acetic acid solutions for yourself? Would any of you use acetic acid to make vinegar at home? Are there any dangers or drawbacks?
Edit: Thanks for the informative responses! It seems my memory was mistaken. We clearly must not have been using acetic acid in powdered form.
