I've had the electrolyte evaporate out of batteries before; an expensive mistake.

I bought some charged batteries and let them sit for 18months or more! When I finally got round to connecting them up(don't ask) ,they were dead as a dodo. So took them back to the shop they charged them ( a few times!! ) and they are fine -not quite as good as new but they hold a charge ok .So your batts may be recoverable.
