New Forno Bravo Forum Feature

Forno Bravo Forum Community,

You will notice a new forum at the top of the main page called, "Ask Me Anything". This forum will be used for live one hour "Ask Me Anything" (AMA) sessions hosted by people who are knowledgeable in different areas pertaining to wood fired ovens. How it works:
- Each AMA will have a "sticky" thread where the community can post questions they would like answered during the live session. This will allow everyone to participate even if you can't be online for the live session. These questions will not be answered by the host until the live AMA; if you need an answer quickly, you should post it in the appropriate Forum area for the community to respond.
- Another thread will be posted for the live AMA. Registered users who are logged in during the live session can interact with the host by asking questions and receiving responses.
- The live thread will remain in the AMA forum to view after the session.

To kick off our AMA feature, we have invited author, chef and master bread maker and host of Pizza Quest, Peter Reinhart, to be our first host! Peter will be in the Forum on Monday, February 15th, from 7:00 - 8:00 pm EST. If you are unable to be online during the live session, you can post your questions in the sticky post. Peter will answer those questions during the live session on February 15th. You can view Peter's answers to your questions as well as what happened during the live session in the session thread.

We hope you enjoy this new feature! Please let us know if there is a topic that you'd like to have as an AMA and we'll look for a host!

    Guys,

    I need to download some pictures. Unfortunately I am more motivated to work when I am at home than go to the computer.

    I laid out the floor and set it. The guy at the brick store talked me into Sairset pre-mixed morter. At first it seemed like a good idea. Two things came up that I want to fix or get settled before I go to the third row of bricks.

    I was trimming the bricks so they have a pretty close fit side to side but I just tipped the bricks up and used mortar to get the curve in the vertical. I did notice the Sairset cracks a little when used in joints that thick (about 9/16")

    Anyone know of adverse effects due to this? Or do I need to reverse course and use a different mortar? (I have the soldier row and the first curved row in and set.)

    Second, for people using Sairset: How do you mix it up when you first open it? There is an oily yellow colored liquid on top that I assume needs to be reconstituted into the entire mix. I think if I stuck a drill and paddle into it I would turn the bucket!

    Is it OK to have a damp sponge to wipe off excess mortar on the inside joint? I am obviously not the greatest bricklayer!

    Last is it ok to put a little water in towards the end of the bucket? I did do that and it works a little easier. Just did not know if it was a good idea!

    Thanks for any input. I need to make hay here in Iowa before November hits!

    Pictures will come, I promise. So far it is going OK.
Working...
