Achiles,

It looks like Sairset is composed of about 43% alumina and 50% silica, which is very similar to the tried-and-true HeatStop 50 (@ 40% alumina and 50% silica). I'm no expert, but it looks like the Sairset should work. The data sheet says to "apply in thickness less than 3 mm." Not sure if that would be an issue.

In theory, it would be best to match your mortar composition to your bricks. According to the FB plans, low-duty firebrick is roughly 30% alumina and 50% silica, the same as the RefMix mortar available from FB.

Members have had bad experiences with wet pre-mix mortar. The stuff tends to go bad, and get lumpy, and not dry properly. I don't know if they were using this specific product but H-W is a big manufacturer.

My feeling? Why pay refractory mortar prices (and shipping) for water? We've got lots of that right on site.
