Perlite or Vermiculite? - 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.

    Are Perlite and Vermiculite interchangeable when building a bread oven?

    What is a reasonable price for a bag of Perlite or Vermiculite?

    Thanks again!

    Re: Perlite or Vermiculite?

    As long as you are getting coarse, yes they are pretty much interchangable, though vermiculite is much less dusty than pearlite!

    As for cost, depends on where you live. Here in the Phoenix AZ market, plan on $30+ for a 4 ft3 bag of vermiculite and $8 for a 3.5 ft3 bag of pearlite.

    Your milage may vary, all patents are pending, dont drink and drive - you might spill.

      I would suggest looking for a local hydroponics store. They will likely carry 8 cubic feet bags of perlite and vermiculite. I paid about $15 per bag. If you try to source these products at Home Depot or the equivalent, plan on paying a lot more.

        Hi, thanks for the advice.

        How many bags of Perlite or Vermiculite would you recommend to insulate under the floor and around the dome of a 80 x 80 cm Pompeii bread oven?
