Freezing some things is not a problem; however some other things it ruins completely.

Glad you solved your issue.

Dollar Tree probably has the same bottles too.

Bondo, Thanks for reassuring me that I’m not the only one to make minor innocent mistakes. My last one was leaving a gate leaned against the chain link fence under the eave of my metal roofed garage. When the snow fell off it did a real number on the fence.

That big bottle of OBG is too big to use anyway. I put mine in an 8 oz squeeze bottle and put the rest in the fridge. It will become liquid enough to flow at around 70ºF. It’s regular hide glue that needs to be at 140 or so.

I started making my own. It’s exactly the same thing as OBG (I even bought my dry glue from Patrick at OBG), but it costs about $5 per pint instead of $25 for 20 oz. I also formulated it to be a little thicker based on temperature to account for the warmer weather here in southern AZ. Regular OBG gets pretty runny and drippy on hot days.

I just use Titebond glue and have truly found it reliable. After 30 plus years it’s what I reach for, Titebond 111

Titebond is a quality PVA glue. Liquid hide glue is a completely different animal — pun intended.

It’s probably not a good idea to leave the Old Brown Glue exposed to heat at all times anyway. If my memory is correct, the directions indicated that the glue has a shelf life and that it lasts longer if kept in a colder environment.

Have some bottles but have t tried it yet. Plan on using it for glue ups like dovetails on casework. I now enjoy using its counterpart HHG. Especially in small stuff. It’s wonderful.
