Just about done my stall shower. 6" ceramic on CBU, 1/8" spacing with Redguard seams and corners, acrylic receptor. I think I should mask and caulk the corners and base to tile seam first then grout but not sure. Is the grout flavored caulk OK to use?

I grout first too. Any grout that gets in the corner joints can be raked out and washed. :)

What does it mean when you say grout that gets in the corner joints can be raked out and washed? Rookie Roger here.

No rocket science here Roger. Simply, any grout that gets into a joint to be caulked later on can be dug out with a sharp tool, cleaned up, then caulked.
