Home Brew
Just a question about HB mix. Being that it has cement has anyone who has built an oven using it had any problems with brick(s) falling in after the build because of expansion and contraction. Or if I follow the build instructions and build advice on forum that this will not be an issue.

Re: Home Brew
I recently demolished my first oven after 2 years because I am building a bigger one. The homebrew was so strong and well adhered the bricks where breaking before the mortar was chipping off. I finally gave up and cut off the old mortar with my wet saw on the bricks I planned to re-use.
