Moving on to grout. I have 2mm grout joints (not 1/8 or 1/16, actually 2mm). I would like to use a sanded grout as I understand these hold up better than unsanded. I found a couple of sanded grouts that appear to be suitable (i.e., small enough aggregate to fit the 2mm joint) but they are premium grouts and are rapid setting. Many reviews of these products indicate that a DIY should steer clear. Pro reviewers however say they are great products (namely: Mapei Ultracolor Plus and TEC Power Grout). Can anyone recommend a sanded grout that will work in a 2mm joint that is also easy to use? I've worked so hard this far and everything has turned out great (mostly thanks to this forum). I would hate to ruin everything with poor grout selection. Thanks!

I like Custom's Prism grout. It says fast setting but I've never noticed it to set too fast. With small joints you'll want to make small batches, spread grout for about 5 minutes and start washing.
