how long have you left sourdough starter dormant for?

Mine has been in my fridge for probably 8 or 9 months. In that time, it hasn't moved, been fed, touched, looked at or even spoken to. I've been a very neglectful steward.

I'm planning on getting it out and feeding it. plan on stirring (it is completely separated, with a dark amber liquid on top), the pouring out about 3/4 of it into the sink (all but about 2 TBs). Then will feed with TBS bread flour and 2TB room-temp bottled water. Then plan on feeding regularly for a week to see how it goes.

What do you think? Will it still be alive? Does my baby have hope for survival?
