If you want to speed up the fermentation of any fruit based fermented drink, you need yeast. The wine yeast is the one that is recommended for ACV. Do not try to substitute with other types of yeast, you will obtain a different vinegar, with a specific taste.

EC-1118 contains Saccharomyces cerevisiae, it used to be named Saccharomyces bayanus, and is one of the most used yeasts for wine fermentation. It has a wide temperature range, which means you don't have to be very strict with the environment temperature. Be carefull, that it is very resistent to alcohol, so your drink or vinegar can end up very strong, if you add too much sugar.
