We investigated the quality characteristics of brewing brown rice vinegar through a traditional static fermentation process. Accordingly, we decided to compare the physicochemical characteristics of brewing vinegar at different temperatures and filtration methods. In four to five weeks' time, the acetic acid fermentation exhibited the highest titratable acidity and then it eventually decreased. The titratable acidity was affected by the filtration method. It was revealed that the titratable

Various organic acids were detected in order to initialize the fermentation stage and as the fermentation progressed, only the acetic acid could be detected. The total free amino acid content was higher at a temperature of 30℃ than at 20℃. Moreover, the free amino acid content was dependent on the acetate content during the acetic fermentation process. The main bioactive substance of the γ-aminobutyric acid content was more than twice at a fermentation temperature of 30℃ compared to the fermentation temperature of 20℃. Furthermore, the total amino acid and essential amino acid content at a temperature of 30℃ was excellent. The quality of the brown rice vinegar via forced filtration method at a temperature of 30℃ was the most excellent. Based on these results, the fermentation temperature and the use of nuruks (fermenting agent) affected the quality of the brown rice vinegar, and an appropriate method to consider its purpose is required.
