    I am not sure anyone else had this issue but I want to post and ask:

    When the triton was back in stock I ordered 3 and they arrived I was opening them up the cartons and adding them to my container and both 3a and the 3b were crystallized.

    I thought at first it was only the first one but all 3 kits had 3a and 3b crystals.

    I open the box and dump one into my container and you can see the crystals on the bottom

    Thanks

    Warm them up - they crystallize when they get cold. People talk about it on their Facebook page all the time, it happens so much that they should put it on the packaging.

    Tagging @GoVols because I was half-joking when I said microwaving your Triton was a thing now. Thanks for the heads-up @csockwell

    Although I do not use triton, I have seen the same problem in peoples build threads. Warming it up should do the trick. The only problem is if you keep it in a area that gets extremely cold at night, it’s going to do this every day.

    Yup, others advice is right on! It can crystallize in cold temperatures - warming the container will help dissolve it :)
