Hey guys.
Just another question here about the gelatine.
If you cap colloidal silver with gelatine does the gelatine go bad or expire after some time?
If it does then refrigeration is required correct?

Yes it will.
 Some of us use their silver in their gelatin to help keep it longer.
I keep mine in the fridge even with silver infusion.

Thank you very much mwh.
Any idea how long it will last in the refrigerator?

I have silver that is years old and still in perfect condition.  I do not store it in the refrigerator, it just sits on a shelf in my basement.  The only thing that can happen to it is that insufficient stabilizer allows the particles to grow over time, or fungus like yeasts are present causing growths in the solution.  I have not had any fungus problems with mine.
Colloidal Silver is only a bargain if you make it yourself.

Interesting. I'll experiment with it, one in the fridge and I'll leave one out somewhere in my house.
Thank you very much kephra.

checkout this thread. It was an absolute revelation to me

Pay most attention to the premade gelatin solution method. It was a joy to discover this as i only make 40ppm colloidal silver.

You know, I just thought about this now, when summer comes around again,
instead of using my microwave I'll put my maison jars outside.  Where I live it gets to 60 C (about 140 F), yeah it is crazy hot here.  At night, it gets to 30 C (about 70 F) or higher. Maybe I should take advantage of the weather for the procedure of making colloidal silver and capping. Do you guys think it will be okay? Or is there too much of unknown factors, such as inconsistent temperature control?

Thank you so much emanwols for the post, much appreciated.
I'm still a beginner and trying to learn many things. I finally got the hang of getting the 20ppm colloidal silver right on each batch that I try to make.

That would be a definite fail.  Silver oxide is very sensitive to ultraviolet light, which is very strong in sunlight.  Ionic silver should never be exposed to ultraviolet, which is why commercial silver (silver oxide) is always sold in brown bottles.

Even fluorescent lighting degrades the silver as its being made. 
Colloidal Silver is only a bargain if you make it yourself.

Thank you very much kephra.
I totally forgot about the light, I read about the light in the articles.  And I didn't think about the lights in my house either.  If light is an issue then is it not possible to cover it or is sun light so strong that no matter what material is used it will still effect it?
I was thinking of sticking 2 or 3 layers of dark colored contact paper on the outside of the maison jars.  Will that even help?

As long as you shield the silver from direct sunlight it will be ok.  You could use a brown glass bottle if you have one large enough, or paint a mason jar black so it absorbs more heat but blocks the ultraviolet.
