LMI Glue - let it warm up?

I've been keeping my bottle of LMI glue in the fridge as suggested. And I was wondering - do I need to let it warm up to room temp before I use it? LMI doesn't mention doing so, but my gut feel is that room temp would be "better". If that is true, then I would hesitate to put the glue back in the fridge after every building session. Otherwise I would spend all of my building time waiting for the glue to warm up :-)

I'm using LMI glue and I've wondered about that also. I ususally take it out of the fridge a couple hours before I need it.

I've been using it for two years, and I've never let it warm up.

Uh-oh. What was that cracking soung from my guitar room....

Don't know. Maybe it's a problem; maybe not.

I've only built one, but I've used it right out of the refrigerator. When you spread it around with your fingers, the layer gets thin and I suspect comes to room temperature prett quickly.

Ok, cold glue it is :-) I have a week of vacation coming up in September and my wife thinks I should spend it building my guitar. Sounds like a plan to me!
