    How long can sugar water be stored before it goes bad? Does it ever go bad. I have some I mixed up and stored in the basement a couple of months ago. It is cool and receives no sun light. It looks the same as when I mixed it up. The change is a physical change and not a chemical so I think it should last a while. Thoughts on this or experience?

    If it smells ok it's fine. It's hot here so I refrigerate mine. I use a little bleach or a little vinegar in each batch to help keep fungus from forming.
