How fine should the sand be for home brew mortar? - 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.

  • How fine should the sand be for home brew mortar?

    I asked the brickyard for fine sand, and they gave me Orange County Silica Sand with a "30" on the bag (100 lb bag). It seems pretty fine to me. I assume that I have #30 sand, correct? Is that grit fine enough, or do I need something smaller for the home brew?

    Resident FB authority Tscarborough's recommendation is to 'build' your homebrew mortar according to the size of the joint, starting with fine sand for the smallest joints and augmenting larger grits into the mix as the joint size increases. Try reading through this thread:
