Wood Glue still usable?

I recently bought one of the larger containers of yellow wood glue for a repair project. After using what I needed I put the rest into a cabinet for later use. My building is unheated and we've has some night time freezing weather down into the 20's. I knew that the glue label said to protect it from freezing however I forgot move it. I don't know how bad it froze if at all? How can I tell if it's damaged or still usable? It doesn't look any different than before.

Thaw it out...let it get to usable temps (over 50 deg) and try it out. It should still be OK.

Usually if there is any damage to liquid glue with glue freezing it gets clumps in it. I normally just strain it through some screen wire so it doesn't stop up the glue bottle.
