Voted cold as it’s free at my Homebase. Sorry
For the sake of what, a couple of quid, it's really not a good deal at all.


Why risk messing up a skim for the sake of a couple of quid a bag (if that)?
Dont forget your couple of pints of water. :-) Your gonna sweat a lot getting this on before it sets.
Won't be hard it ain't got wet and bags cost about £8 full price tbh with the cold conditions won't affect it too much but each too there own
For the uneducated out there, yes it may set a bit faster, but there are many of occasions when that's exactly what we are looking for, besides an experienced plaster will mix it with fresher stuff, if a bit more time is needed on larger areas, so a shorter setting time is really no inconvience........in fact i always carry old plaster or dirty water for house renovations..........just a pity i didn't live closer..!

Most experienced plasters I know will tell me to buy some new stuff and stop being so cheap. Old stuff is weird, sometimes it sets fast and others just won't set fast enough, apparently the additives are different for summer and winter also

If someones not paying for it then they wont care what it cost, so that's hardly a reasoned argument.......but it makes sense to save money if your supplying the material, as long as it doesn't impact on the quality of the finish, and as stated previousy, quite often a plasterer will use different ways to reduce the setting time.......but older plasterer is certainly not to be used by someone inexperienced.......and for the record British Gypsum have never admitted to changing the additives for summer and winter, there are certainly other reasons for different setting times........so basicaly nearly a 75% saving provided you know what your doing.....seems fair enough to me.
