... Panela? Why not just used the raw sugar like suggested if u want to culture a mother... I tried making kombucha but didn't get the desired taste cause of sunlight I think... You keep it in a dark place?

I have never used sugar in making vinegar and never had a problem developing a mother, but the apples came from an un-sprayed tree.
My biggest problem was having any cider left after it got hard to make vinegar from.
