Default Should it stay or should it go

I had the brilliant idea to spice things up and use 1 gallon of cheap raspberry juice to 4 gallons of apple juice + montrachet (re: Apfelwein). 4 weeks later it cleared and tastes a little off, and sort of gross. I'm really wishing I didn't toy with the recipe in this case. Luckily I have enough to get me through, but what to do with this?

Give it a proper funeral in the backwoods and start a fresh batch tonight?

Or let it come to a possible fruition?

Carboys are VALUABLE real estate here

Stash it somewhere and forget about it. Just might turn out fine, like finding a 20$ bill in the laundry.

No real harm in letting it sit in the basement and forgetting about it for a few months. Im not saying its going to get any better but it doesnt hurt to give it a try.
Probably not gonna get much better, but I would defiantly stash it somewhere for awhile.

Edit: you fast bastard

Like buffalo and masshole said let it sit for a while. If you don't like it after it's aged for a while longer use it for marinade or if you've got a smoker put it in the water bowl.

Toppers, I'm in the 'wait and see' camp (having had several batches that improved considerably with age).

But based on your last line, you don't want to tie a carboy up for that long .... so that just means you need more carboys

Oh, I want one alright!

But...the troubles it would cause.

Maybe I could give a few for gifts...hmmm...or, MAYBE if I could put someone up to giving ME one for a gift.

But, what good would it do to have it, if I couldn't wear it!!!

Let me ponder this for a while.
