I just froze my priming sugar trying to cool it down in the freezer. Should I still use it? Thanks.

just nuke it to get it liquid . When I bottled I didn't cool it at all a cup or so of prime even at boiling temps will cause no problems with 5 gallons of beer

Me either.

And since priming solution doesn't have yeast in it, freezing and then thawing makes no real difference. Just get it in a liquid form that can be distributed evenly in the 5 gallon batch.
