Perlite ratio - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



Photo Galleries are back! Instructions below.

Dear forum users,
Thank you for your patience with the Photo galleries. We've got your galleries online!
We have finished writing a custom script to migrate the PhotoPlog to vBulletin5’s albums.

Unfortunately V-Bulletin killed the "Photoplogs" in their software upgrade which was unforeseen and we're the first development group to have written a script for getting the galleries back... that said, it took some time to reverse engineer the code and get the albums to move over seamlessly!

Forum users will be able to access their “PhotoPlog” images through their user profile page by clicking on the “Media” tab.
They will also be able to browse other albums by going to the albums page. (On the forum site, there is a link in the black bar beside “Forums” to the albums.)

In order for users to create an album please follow the steps below.
1) Go to user profile page and click “Media”
2) Click Add Photos
3) Enter Photo Gallery Title in the first field
4) Click Upload or Select from Photo Album to add photos
5) Click Post
6) Once posted, the album will be created as a “Topic” on the albums page for the public to see. The topic title will be the “Photo Gallery Title” they created before uploading their photos.

To create this migration path we used vBulletin5’s default album structure. Unfortunately, it won’t work like the “PhotoPlog” but is an album/gallery component on the forum now.

  • Perlite ratio

    I was searching on here and couldn't find the ratio I am supposed to use for the perlite concrete mix. My friend told me 7/1 but he said to come on here and check.

    Hi, I saw your project at the pizza site.
    I made a similar inquiry a few days ago on this here:

    Good luck with your new oven!

      I use a 5:1 mix for the load bearing 4 inch layer under the hearth. I used a 12:1 mix for the non load bearing 4 inch layer on top of the dome.

        I used a 6-1 ratio for my 4 in layer underhearth portion. It worked well, mix the dry together first and then fold in the water to the mix gently. Cover and let it dry slowly, be patient.

          I am going to fill in the gap on top of the dome. So 12:1 works good? I don't want it to be to heavy because its on top of the dome. Also does anyone know where I can buy the Fiberfrax Dura blankets in the Massachusetts area, I kinda need it asap.

          Thanks FXpose I have been watching your thread, you are doing an awesome job with the oven. The vent looks sick.
