    Go for the poor mans mortar, 1 part portland cement, 1 part quick lime, 1 part fireclay and 3 parts brickie sand.
    Wet your bricks well and go for it.

    Cheers.

        I'd follow the instructions on the bag/container.
        Personally, I wouldn't buy such a product as many members who have used similar products report cracks. I used the home brew and have no cracks at all.

        Cheers,
