Glue::How old is too old?

I have a can of clifton (and accelerator), never opened, 1 year old. Too old to use on a patch and a handful of new d-rings?
Opinions.

why chance it. Just buy a new one. If it were an emergency on the river on a multi day trip, I would use it. But for $15 dollars, go get a new can.

Yeah, I hear that. I guess the cheapskate in me was hoping not to have to...

What about the accellerant?

Most concoctions with volatile solvents (i.e. raft glues) tend to age poorly.

If I have repairs or dee-rings to mount, I buy fresh glue.
