India Dark Vinegar

Well, shit.  That didn't work.  I was brewing an India Dark Ale five gallon extract kit and something went wrong.  Maybe not wrong but not right.  Basically, the whole batch tastes like vinegar.  It's pretty gross.
It's my fault, too.  I got lazy and didn't secondary ferment or bottle on time.  Secondaries and bottling days don't have to be strictly on schedule.  You can push them back but don't let it go too long like I did.
So the end result is that I start this year and go into Febrewary with five gallons of extra hoppy vinegar.
