      So, a couple of do-it-yourself tile books I have talk about thinset in almost mystical terms as how hard it is to mix, get the consistency right, and have good adhesion. I poked around the net, and found someone who measured out a 50# bag of versabond, cup by cup. The magic ratio is 11 cups thinset to 4 cups water. I used this ratio, and my very first batch was absolutely perfect. I was laying 16" tiles, so I could put down about 6 tiles (I was using a 1/4 x 3/8 notched trowel) before I had to mix more. The key was that the troweled peaks did not sag, nor were they gritty (too much water, too little, respectively). I checked adhesion and it was fantastic. If you follow the mix ratio above, you get slightly less than 1 gallon of thinset. I was able to easily mix this in a plastic pail with an 18V Dewalt. I have also used the pre-mix thinset, but wanted to try the Versabond because it is so much less expensive. I'm glad I did. The picture below is Montagna Cortina, carried by Home Depot, along with Hardiebacker. Over the past few years, I've completed two baths, a backsplash, and some decorative tiling with this combination.
