Oh, well, ok. It seems like you were mentioning adding fermentables (to take down the bitterness) and adding yeast. If you're just watering down the beer, you'll just be out new caps I guess.

I added a pound of brown sugar, which is a dollar, the gallon of water was $.25 to refill at my filter station, and a pack of Safeale 5. I lost maybe $5 to gain another gallon of beer and the experiment a little.. Money worth spent.

+1 experimentation...
Some of my experiments turned out to be great products...
Then again, other ones fed the gators in the sewer.
Good luck!

I would have just blended it with something appropriate in the glass.

13 bottles? Seems like a lot of trouble unless they are big bottles. I'd make bratwursts or chili with it.

I should have!!! Turned into an infection nightmare. This fermenter ended up having a bad scratch in the plastic that must have harbored some fugitives. Going to look for another English Brown recipe that's more to my liking to begin with next time. Thanks!

well then id argue its money well-spent. you lost 13 bottles of crappy beer and 5 dollars in ingredients discovering an infection that would have ruined an entire batch. looks to me like your curiosity paid off handsomely.
