My box of premix drywall froze

I moved and I forgot to bring my box of drywall premix compound in and it froze
Can I still use it if I bring it in the house and let it unfreeze???

Probably not!

If it thaws and goes back to normal consistency - it might be ok, if it stays real thick, it's no good.

Joint compound isn't all that expensive so I'd replace it. I'd hate to apply it to the wall and find out later it didn't bond well

This stuff is not freeze thaw stable. You could force it on a first coat. But your last coat NO WAY. You need super clean fresh!! <p>Like mark says, this is one of the least expensive materials in home improvement. 10 bucks or less and you are good to go.
