  1. Vinegar is acetic acid, not alcohol. But when vinegar reacts with ethanol it produces an ester called Ethyl acetate. That is not alcohol either, it is an organic salt Pete, Just a quick pedantic point. Ethyl acetate is not a salt either. Generally speaking Organic salts have VERY high vapor pressures and consequently boiling points. Ethyl Acetate is just a small ester compound. It's also quite volatile (its boiling temp is ~ 171 F). It can be produced by the interaction of acetic acid and alcohol, but it can also be produced by yeast as a metabolic byproduct
