I suggest listening to these guys about mixing for the full amount of time that it says on the bag, letting it slake, then mixing again per directions. That’s the best way to get the longest pot...

Hi, Jon.

I've been through a lot of remodels. A lot. The questions you ask are very common and I've been through the thought progression with many people many times. So with that, I'll give you my...

Welcome to the forum, George! :wave:

I’d look for a color closest to your...
