"Ready-mixed compound is sensitive to cold weather and
must be protected from freezing. If material freezes in the
container, allow it to thaw at room temperature. Do not force
the thawing process. Do not pour off any liquid that has
separated from the compound. Remix using a power drill
mixer until smooth and creamy. Usually thawed compound
will again be usable, unless it has been subjected to several
freeze-thaw cycles." From, pp 176; http://www.usg.com/documents/constru...k/chapter5.pdf
