They might still be good. You can still boil some jars, but with a higher rate of contams.

Boiling is fine if you use the PF Tek but for Rye you wouldnt have such good results. There are microwave sterilization teks but I dont trust all that. PC is like 30 bucks from walmart for a small one or off ebay for a big one. Syringe should be ok but maybe not..depends on how well stored and temps they got to. Only one way to find out. Definatly worth a try! :thumbup: Good luck!

You could always order a presterilized grow bag from sporeworks or someplace like that.
