I had about a table spoon of the bacteria stuff that cleaned out the drains and a bottle of syrup so I miced the two together with a cup of warm water to see if it grew on just sugar or if I really needed the beer in it.

Plus I'm exhausted but bored and restless...

I left it in the sink in case it grew suddenly in the middle of the night but so far nothing in the first hour.

You'll probably need to add more water to the mix. Concentrated sugar dehydrates cells, which will limit bacterial growth.

I did last night after pondering it a bit and reached the same conclusion.

Still there is not a bit of change over night, so I might go get a beer,

and dump it in.

Bacteria naturally encapsulate (like yeast) and go dormant when they run out of growing medium. The alcohol in the beer may help penetrate the capsule, and the minerals may help start their ion pumps. You might be able to get the same effect from apple juice and a little salt.
