At a 6.0-7.0 range you may not need to do any pH adjustment.

(But I think it'd be wise to have some samples professionally tested for pH...not the 'box store' pH testers, either!)

Again...I never got a straight answer from the old fellow why they used vinegar...he is certainly 1st generation American; of German or Dutch descent w/ a strong accent, and he was struggling to find the right words to tell me that day.

In my opinion, if you had to lower pH; split-pea sulfur would work just as well.
Maybe better, because it'd be more likely to bond to the soil structure over a long period, and not 'leach out'.

Maybe check this site out...(you'll probably find more help there than with all the lawn-jockeys oh here !!)
