I am unable to get Brown vinegar, so is it ok to use Apple Cider Vinegar

    What exactly do you mean by "brown vinegar"? That term has different meanings in different countries. – John Feltz Nov 19 '16 at 13:19

    Apple cider vinegar is consider 'brown,' as are malt, balsamic and brown rice. And, yes, it is okay. – Giorgio Nov 19 '16 at 15:17

Pretty much any type of vinegar works.

update: Responding to comment below, I guess I would stay away from distilled white vinegar and and any "heavy" types such as balsamico, jejiang, shanxi and so on. Apple cider vinegar, white or red wine vinegar, sherry vinegar and so on would all work well.

    Uh... what is considered "any type" is very regional :) I am sure 25% distilled vinegar, or a strong chinkiang, will make interesting but inexpected styles of pickled onion :) – rackandboneman May 12 '17 at 13:54
  • That's very true! I suppose even synthesised acetic acid would work but not make anything enticing. – user110084 May 12 '17 at 14:05
