Apricot Vinegar Anyone?

A year ago I sealed apricots, vinegar, bread, yeast and sugar in a food grade white bucket and stuck it in my HVAC intake vent.  With school out, I thought I would pull it out and see what I got.  It smells a lot like apple cider vinegar.  It tastes a lot like apple cider vinegar.  For vinegar, it smells and tastes pretty good.

No now what? What on earth am I going to do with ten gallons of vinegar?  With ten gallons of apricot brandy, I could easily find friends to help me out.  But vinegar?

There is also the question of how do I keep the stuff.  Put it back in the HVAC vent? Should I can it?  Make pickles with it? Use if for a life time of salad dressing?  Does anyone out there have similar experiences?  If so, what did you do?
