double bagged refractory cement? - 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.

  • double bagged refractory cement?

    I had to purchase some more refractory cement to finish my dome, and new cement came in an unmarked bag. I started using it (it was pink colored), and after I had used about half of it I found that there was another bag of cement inside the first one, and this cement was a dark gray color!

    What's the difference between the two cements, and what am I supposed to do with them? Mix them together? Does the gray stuff go on the outside of the dome and is the pink stuff for cementing the bricks together?

    Someone out there must know the answers to these questions!

    Too little info. Where did you buy it? Was there a brand name on the inner bag?
    A good place to ask all your questions is with the retailer. If it was Forno Bravo, you need to call or email their customer service. They try to keep up with the posts on the forum but it is very difficult if a problem or question is not sent directly to them.

      Not being a premixed expert Id say that the smaller bag was to be mixed with the larger bag to make a good mix.
      The English language was invented by people who couldnt spell.

        The dark cement was most likely Cement Fondue as an additive for the other goop.

          Hello brntnrtn1,

          In our previous packaging for FB Mortar, we provided the cement and aggregate in separate bags, and they should have been mixed. Please contact me at 1-800-407-5119 ext 14, so we can work out the best way of moving forward.
