Clint … here’s the info. directly from the BONA MEGA product brochure which you seem to favor …

Shelf life: 1 year from date of production in unopened original container
Storage/transport: The temperature must not fall below +5°C or
exceed +25°C during storage and transport.

SHELF LIFE ... ONE YEAR FROM DATE OF MANUFACTURE … and, just how long did it sit in storage or on the shelf before you even purchased it ???

TEMPERATURE ... 41 to 77 degrees F. … NOTE … they said it can never fall outside of those limits …we’ve already been in the upper 80’s around the SE, so, I guess I would need to trash your wonderful BONA MEGA and try another can, hoping it just flew off the shelves at my local retailer, so I didn’t get stuck with a can close to a year old. They also demand that “Prior to application the surface must be pre-treated with a waterborne primer from Bona.” Further … “Optimal application conditions are between 18-25 deg.C and 40-60% relative air humidity. High temperatures and low humidity shorten, low temperatures and high humidity lengthen drying time. Minimum temperature for use is 13 deg C.” Got that ?? Minimum temperature at time of application is 55.4 deg F. ... AND, the stuff goes bad if EVER exposed to 77 deg. F.

And, YOU think that releasing a bit of propane from a torch into a container of finish is ”EXTREME” ???

To throw out fairly $$$$ finish and run around trying to find fresh product is perfectly NORMAL to you … but reaching up and opening a propane torch valve, directing the flow into a container is somehow ”EXCESSIVE” ???
