I have a dilemma, though not the worst dilemma to have. I have a brew from months ago, a mango blonde, that is not great. It is not good. But it is definitely passable. I almost wish it was a total failure so I could dump it, but it isn't a total failure. However, I have other homebrews now and coming down the pipeline that are substantially better, so I rarely drink it. It just takes up space in my fridge, and uses bottles I could use for a (hopefully?) much better beer. At this rate, it might still be in my fridge by the end of the year.

Has this happened to any of you? What'd you do with it?

What do you do with a passable homebrew?

Drink it when you're schnockered and don't care about the taste

Pass it off to friends and acquaintances who don't know the difference?

Or you could send some to me and I'll you know if I think it's worth saving

When a panhandler asks for change give him some craptacular home brew instead of change.

This is not a bad idea at all. My wife cooks things with beer all the time.

either own your failure and drink it or own your failure and dump it (despite all of cries on here about: DON'T DUMP IT, IT'LL GET BETTER!!!!!...sometimes, despite popular opinion, its better to dump)

The key is to own it and move on.

People used to shampoo with beer in the 70s, so why not drink your craptacular beer in the shower AND use the beer as a shampoo?
