    Ditto. That is exactly what I put in my biscuits.

    For what it's worth, I always use the milk/lemon juice combo. I don't usually measure the lemon juice, either. I just make sure there is enough in the milk to curdle it.

    I'm glad your biscuits turned out!

    I use vinegar or lemon juice, whatever is handy. I have never been able to tell a difference.

    I use either too, whatever I have on hand. I can never tell the difference, they both work perfectly.

    If your recipe calls for a cup of milk, pour a teaspoon of vinegar in first, then add enough milk to make a cup. Usually a teaspoon is enough to do the job. It won't curdle as hard as buttermilk, but will do the job in most recipes.
