You've done nothing wrong at all, Eggie, we just sometimes get a little short handed, 'specially on weekends, and some questions are overlooked. But we try.

1. Yes, a bit wetter mixture under the Kerdi drain is good. Emphasis on "a bit." I find it helpful to richen up the mixture there by tossing a handful of Portland or masonry cement or thinset mortar into a gallon can of mud. Makes it moosh a bit easier.

2. No, I would not recommend you do that. You really want that shower floor to be monolithic. I think you'll find that once you've packed mud under your Kerdi drain it's quite solid enough to act as a guide for screeding the rest of the floor mud.

My opinio; worth price charged.
