The lesson in all this.... There is a fine reason why people ferment Grape Wine on the Pomace and they ferment Apples on the Juice only! If fermenting apples on the Pomace worked better -- we would be doing it that way....
But... If you want to make Vinegar -- I recommend it.
Since you have vinegar, why not make the most of it? Garlic vinegars, chive vinegars, raspberry or blackberry vinegars, rosemary/garlic vinegars, etc. Flavored vinegars sell for a high dollar at Whole Foods and such. Package them up in nice bottles and wax. And don't forget to include a good pour spout. There are all your X-mas gifts for the season!
