MTFBWY Eps: 05 - Cast Refractory Pour

Well guys, In this episode, I mix up the refractory and pour it in the forge pieces that I built in the beginning of this series!

My cast refractory consists of 4 parts:

Silica Sand
Portland Cement

*due to funds at the time, I could not afford actual fireclay, so i opted for regular clay... this was a big mistake i found out... my forge is capable of reaching 2300*F, but holding it at those temperatures is destroying it... the ceiling part around the burner inlets is melting off, leaving dangerous hotspots on the top of the forge.
