Solid State glycerol

Well, its almost time to deal with the backlog of glycerol from my biodiesel. My recovery still is just about completed.
Brewed using NaOH and drained the glycerol into cubees and 5 gal buckets. The stuff is in a solid state now.
Any suggestions as to the best way to liquify it so I can get it down the pipe without a huge mess?

thanks

Add water and warm it to 'room' temperature.
Cubies of glycerol make excellent thermal mass for the greenhouse.
