Vermiculite Hearth too dry? - 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.

  • Vermiculite Hearth too dry?

    Hi Folks,

    I poured my vermiculite insulation hearth today. I mixed the vermiculite with the cement 5:1 then added water to what i thought was an oatmeal like consistency. After pouring it i felt that it was perhaps too dry and that i didnt add enough water. However, after having another look at the pics in the plans im not too sure. I've uploaded a couple of photos. Any comments would be greatly appreciated

    Cheers Ross

      Nice one, thanks T! First time i've mixed it so wasnt sure what it should look like. Was also a bit weird to work with. Looking forward to getting a start on the dome and floor.

      Thanks for the help

      Cheers Ross

        Everyone thinks vermiculite concrete is weird to work with the first time.
