I can give you a rough estimate. 500ml of 6% if you add 500 ml of water that would give you 1ltr of 3% so 500 ml of water has dropped the acidity by 3% so a third of 500ml should drop the acidity by 1% =166 ml. Don't know if my maths are correct but that is what I would use.

I would have said
(Percentage A) x (volume A) / (Percentage B) = (volume B)
In this case 6 x 500 / 5 = 600. So you'd need to add 100ml water.
No?

Or you can do what I do, only fill the jar 3/4 full of vinegar and top up with water. Has worked for me for years. :D

Got it now. :thumbs: 6 x 500 / 3 = 1000. You can see I never done algebra as a kid. :laugh:

Just worked it out 😆

100ml dilutes by 1.2% so you need to add 83.33333ml to water down by 1%
