5 to one is safe, folks have gone to as much as 8 to one, by premixing the cement and water in a slurry before adding the vermiculite.

I have been talking to a mate who is looking to make a WFO and he was looking at other plans that suggested to use Hebel as the insulating layer, has anyone heard of this and had any success with this??
