Prokote

Made a build last night and noticed the red bottle of Prokote has turned a darker yellow. Luckily we were coating yellow thread. I have read on here that the shelf life is about 6 months but we have only had this bottle about 3 months. Our garage where we do our work gets quite warm here in the deep South as we don't run the air all the time. Does heat accelerate the breakdown?

It hasn't "broken down." Epoxy doesn't break down - it'll be fine for years and years.

All epoxies are going to yellow, either in the bottle or on the rod. Nature of the beast.

I have had some epoxies turn a deep oxblood red over time. Epoxy is still good to use and the color change isn't noticed much when applying 2 or 3 thin coats.
