Can it still be used or throw it away?

Depends on whether or not it separated. If it hasn’t, you can probably use it. If it has, toss it.

My shop is only heated when I’m in it, so my glue freezes all the time… no problem.

Titebond states in a technical brochure that it can take up to 5 freeze/thaw cycles before going bad. Here’s a quote:
“Can Titebond Wood Glues Be Used After They Have Been Frozen?
Yes. While freezing is not recommended, extensive testing indicates that the
glues can be frozen and thawed up to five times without compromising
performance. If your glue has been frozen, let it acclimate to room temperature
and shake/stir to original form. “

If you want a link to that document in a pdf file, here it is:

Titebond says on their site that it can withstand up to 5 freeze/thaw cycles. The Titebond original and II are supposedly “stable” if frozen. They actually recommend storing the glues in the fridge to maximize the shelf life. Who would’ve thought to keep your glue in the fridge?

How about you glue a couple pieces of scrap together and see if it holds :o)

I’ve kept mine in the fridge for years (and have been laughed at for it). Lasts longer that way. Anyway, that’s just the gallon jug, I have 2 glue bottles in the shop always at room temp.

I’d just test it on some scrap if you have any doubts.
