The caveat of this article is that dry measuring of less than full bags of lime could possibly result in over sanding mortar.


This article along with "The Myth In The Mix" by Gerard Lynch express the need to be diligent to prevent the pitfall .

Upon contemplating the article,it stands to reason why a 50 lb. bag of Dry Hydrate = 1.25 cu.ft. reason being,to compensate for the volume change when turned to a putty.
