Flame free noobs questions?

Should ive a sticky here. Ive got one so ill start.
Ive got about 40 gal of unfiltered peanut oil. Used once to fry turkeys. Its about 35-40 deg in my garage. I came out a few days ago and a few containers looked like this. Why would they do this but not the others?

its just that there is hydrogenated oil in there. There is really nothing wrong with it. Thats just what happens to oil at that temperature.

It could be a few different things like they may have been used to fry frozen foods or not. Maybe they were used for a shorter amount of time. If you have a heated system then you have nothing to worry about. If you are thinking about blending it then thats the #1 reason why you shouldnt

Yeah that's just normal. It's cold and its partially hydrogenated oil and that's what it does.
