Default Experiment Gone Wrong

Well, a few months ago I brewed up an experimental batch using only LME and Honey. Just wanting to see how it would turn out. It pretty much taste like crap..
So, in an attempt to salvage what's left, I was thinking about opening all the beer and putting it back in a fermenter and dry hopping it. I know I'm gonna introduce oxygen into it, which isn't good. But I hate having it laying around not being drank.

Anybody have any other ideas?

Give it to people you don't like.

Don't waste the hops, you wouldn't wrap a turd in bacon and eat it because it would still be a turd right?

Save it.

Use it for marinating brautwursts this summer or something. Who knows too, it might actually turn out to be drinkable in a couple of months.

why was it bad, lack of hops?

There are some recipes that are little more than DME, sugar, and hops that I've heard excellent reviews of.

I'm guessing the lack of hops made it sickeningly sweet. You could try adding some hop extract, but it's kind of spendy.

i can see where it might not taste up to par with no hops but i dont think it would be disgusting maybe youve got an infected batch or oxydized beer. mead does not have any hops and tastes damn good even at lower alcohols.
