Well, I tried the experiment:  put a small sample of
Hericium erinaceus spawn into my freezer overnight, 
so that it was frozen solid in the morning.  Then
thawed it out slowly.  The spawn was unaffected by
this treatment--it appeared to do no damage at all to
the mycelium, and it was still very much alive.
