Joint compound looks like yogurt with whey?

Good evening,

Can anyone please tell me if DAP ready-mix wall joint compound that looks like plain yogurt with lots of yellowish clear liquid separated from it is okay to use? All (both) previous buckets of this joint compound I have used looked like a whitish paste when the bucket was opened. There was no liquid separated from the paste. Thank you.

Sincerely,
MerryB

You lost me with the yogurt and whey

As long as it mixes ok it should be fine to use. It isn't uncommon for the liquid to seperate from the body. If you have a drill and paddle that is the best way to mix it. Otherwise scoop some mud in your pan, pour in a little of the liquid and mix with your knife.

Thank you- joint compd okay to use after separating.

Thank you very much. You described the problem well, in spite of my 'cheesy' description. It's good to know the joint compound is still usable. :-)
