Default C/A shelf life

I have a couple of bottles of CA, (~1½ years old), and I'm wondering if they're OK? One is open the other not. They are still fluid.
Also, I have 5 min & 30 min epoxy that has thickened in my cool work room but comes back if immersed in hot water. Have these lost properties?
I'm starting a new kit, (Venture 60).
Thanks all!

I think it depends how long it sits at the distributor and the hobby shop. This could be years for all we know. I have kept it in the freezer for over a year, sealed or not and it was fine. Let it warm up before using. I bought some cut rate stuff at the LHS. It was bad (too thick) right off the shelf. Have never noticed any condensation.
