Hello, Forno Bravo Community Forum members.

As many may have noticed already, the Community Forum site was briefly down today. While working on scheduled routine maintenance, we encountered an error when trying to add a software update. As the site is now back up and running, some of you may notice that some recent data has been misplaced from November 10th up to today. We are currently working on resolving the issue. The forum has full operational capabilities and we encourage all forum members to continue actively posting in the threads.

We apologize for any inconvenience that this issue may have caused you. The Forno Bravo family values each and every member of our community. If you have any issues or concerns, please feel free to let us know on our issues thread here:

    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.
