... use spirit vinegar...

The whole reason for the selfsufficientish website was to offer a place where anyone can ask, HOW DO I...? So who knows why it has taken us so long to have a HOW DO I? section, but here it is. So if you want to know how to do anything selfsufficientish then here is the place to ask.

... use spirit vinegar...

... that's previously been used for eggs?

Last night in the pub I was struck by the quantity of clear vinegar in a jar containing, by that time, one pickled egg. I may have made the observation out loud, and am now the proud owner of a large jar and about a litre of very eggy vinegar :mrgreen:

Any bright ideas about what I can do with it?

Yes, that's what I do (only I use spiced malt vinegar) and the lot that's now maturing is in vinegar that has been used and reused at least a dozen times.
The same goes for pickled onions.

And you weren't the first to suggest that!

I take it that's onions in onion vinegar, not onions in eggy vinegar? I'm not sure about pickled eggs, but I do like pickled onions.

Yes that's right, although with spiced vinegar I don't think it would make much difference ... I don't think you could taste any egginess in my 10 year old vinegar.
You could always make your spirit vinegar into spiced vinegar and then pickle whatever you fancy.
