You know what? I think it is a beneficial exercise for your first batch.
I have my first (awful) batch in bottles right now. I have been drinking one every few days since the 7 day mark. I think it's now at 3 weeks in bottles. And I am drinking one now.
I am one of the n00bs that even started a "Is my beer infected?!?!?!" thread.
But what I can tell you , is that they get better...daily. It really is astounding.
I have been calling this batch "Slug Bait Amber" because of my summertime plans for the once "ruined batch."
But I am having one now, and ... knowing the mistakes I made, it could be worse.
Tonight, my wife even told me "it doesn't taste right, but it really goes down really smooth."
2 weeks ago, I couldn't have thought that would be the case.
Now I have Amber v2.0 in the primary and IPA dry-hopping in secondary.
More importantly, I finally have a drinkable HB to RDWHAHB with as I sweat out the next few weeks!
