I would be willing to bet that since it has been in the fridge, it will be fine.

I had an 8 month old syringe that was just left in a room, and it failed to germinate. I'm not really sure what happened to it. I can't imagine that it got too hot, but maybe it did. They're spores for Christ's sake, they should be able to live through just about anything...

It is certainly worth trying, in my opinion.

I've had one sitting around for 2 years that i've used with decent results. All the jars colonized but were a little slower than normal.

I had 5 spore syringes, 1.5 years old, forgotten in a drawer at room temp.

Did PF Tek cakes, all of them failed, except 2.

The two that took are doing fine, but growing quite slowly.

The refrigerator I have is slightly unreliable (it's prone to getting extremely cold for periods of time) so if I store a syringe in my fridge and it gets cold to the point of having ice in it, do you think that will kill the spores?

No question is so difficult to answer as that to which the answer is obvious.

They can survive light freezes no problem. Also spores clump and if you forget to shake it and the clumps on the plunger then you'll have a good chance at having the syringes fail, you'd be surprised at how many people forget to shake sometimes myself included! Spores are very tough and one of natures best designs. :wink:
