This is the source for my miss-information

Excerpt from article.

Additional tips: • Glue strength gradually declines with extended heating or repeated cooling and reheating. You can successfully reheat hide glue several times for non-critical work like gluing on dampers, back rail cloth, etc. (store covered in the refrigerator between uses). However, for high strength uses like wood working or hammer hanging, always mix it fresh. • Common lore is to mix the glue crystals with cold water only, then let it sit overnight before heating. I believe this is unnecessary and have always mixed and heated immediately with excellent results

Just goes to show you can’t believe everything you read. Either they are wrong or I am. I don’t know their source but mine is personal experience and being told this by Patrick Edwards who I believe above all others when it comes to animal glues.
