I had a five gallon bucket of spore slurry that I kept in the garage with a cover on top to keep bugs from getting in there.  I did not realize until after applying it to some plants that the slurry may have gone anaerobic.  Should I leave it as is or add compost tea to correct any deficiencies in beneficial bacteria?

Aeration is the easiest way to start correcting that slurry, adding some compost to the bucket would be good after you have plenty of O2 mixed in.
