I'm not talking about between each individual block. I have a 36x14 glass block sheet that I need to mortar into a rough opening with cement all around. Is this workable? The best solution? Thanks.

Answer: 
Please consult with the manufacturer of the prebuilt glass-block window for mortar specifications. Some Glass Block manufacturers may recommend a Type S mortar – if that is the case, QUIKRETE® Mason Mix No. is a gray Type S mortar. Many people prefer to use a white mortar when placing glass blocks for improved aesthetic appeal, such as QUIKRETE® Glass Block Mortar No. 1610, which is also a Type S mortar. Read More

Answer: 
yes , because it works the best in a grout bag, you can shim the window in place and bag the joint around the edges, If the window is too small buy solid 4 inch block and saw cut them to the right thickness to center the window in its opening. or fill with tight mortar and add after it starts to set.
be creative using some masonry stones or flat rocks to fill areas ,and mortar over them if they don't

Can this mortar be used on the interior of a basement for a chimney?

Our chimney on the inside of the basement is leaking water into the basement and I was wondering if this product could be used to seal the chimney. The bottom of the chimney is rough and doesn't appear to be finished right. I have read other questions and answers and it was said it is not a sealing or bonding product. Please tell me what I could use if this is not appropriate.

A more suitable product for your application is QUIKWALL® Surface Bonding Cement (No. 123050 white, 123150 gray) blended with QUIKRETE® Concrete Acrylic Fortifier (No. 8610) replacing a portion of the mixing water content per instructions.

It would be best to address the root cause of the water intrusion through sloping land away from the house, ensuring gutters are directed away from the house, etc. Read Less

Answer: 
First you need to address the problem, where is the water coming from? I would install a metal chimney cap if you don't have one. Second check the top and sides of the chinmey for cracks in the mortar, and your roof flashings. It's not going to do any good if don't first find the water source..

Rated 3.4 out of 5 by 16 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Difficult to work with I bought this to rebuild the top part of a brick chimney. I found that the mortar did not stick to the bricks and was very stiff. There seemed to be a low proportion of cement and the sand was very coarse making it very difficult to adjust the bricks into the exact position. In the end I decided to dismantle my work - some bricks came off easily, but others actually had stuck well and it took me a while to remove them. I then rebuilt it again using a different pre-mixed mortar - that was better and although it was still not great I was able to work with it. Things are sturdy and I am confident that the brickwork will hold up. Next time I do some bricklaying I am going to buy myself some bags of cement, lime and sand and mix my own up so I know what I am getting. October 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Structural cement I've used his cement to re-point a retaining wall that was badly in need of repair. This cement does the job well. October 4, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Bad Product POOR quality product...Did not work for me, i will never but it again... August 24, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Not the same I've been having problems with quickCrete lately..specifically as it applies to this product as a couple others have mentioned its stick ability/tack point is more brittle than it used to be. For interior applications I have found that cement dust from the joint slowly erodes and causes a mess on the floor July 4, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by journyman bricklayer for 42 yrs, type S in the green bag or commerical grade goes easily through a grout bag for tuck pointing. Is also the equal to any mixes a bricklayer would use on new construction fireplace or basement. Im a bricklayer for 42 years and I use this brand for smaller jobs where I don't want to bring out the mixer and the sand pile. Can be mixed in a wheel barrel or if you put 3 1/2 inches of water(keep extra water available) in the bottom of a bucket and mix 1- 80 lb bag with a powerful drill. you will have a close mix, continue to add water as need if to tight. when using the grout bag do not make the mix to watery because the richness of this mix will make it flow easily with proper twisting and squeezing. fill areas from the inside out till it sets a bit then cut it off and slick the joint or broom stick the joint for less shine. this will give a neat job with no mortar on the face of the brick... Kurt / Ohio November 30, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by The key is in the mixing... The key to any good mud is in the mixing. You'll want to mix it to the consistency of butter for it to stick properly. You'll need a 5 gallon bucket, 1/2" heavy duty drill, paddle mixer to attach to the drill and water. Fill the 5 gallon bucket about 1/4 full. Open the end of the mason mix bag by cutting it all the way open using a utility knife. Fill the bucket about 1/2 full. Take the drill and start to whip it up. Keep adding mason mix and water until you have the bucket about 2/3 full and you have mixed the mortar for at least 5 minutes and it is starting to look like butter. Have a 3/4"x2'x2' piece of plywood ready on a stand and dump the mortar on it and you are ready to go. You'll need a trowel also. Good luck. September 29, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Hardly Better Than Sticks and Mud This product has been usable for small block jobs in the past. However Quickcrete has gone cheap and is now using manufactured sand (rock dust from quarry washed stone)like their yellow bag mix. The sand that used to be in this mix was crushed quartz (med..sharp with sugar sand fines) aggravating but usable if you added a shovel of type s mortar to each bag. Buy a 2.5# hammer to beat this stuff down to keep a 3/8 joint. The other pro reviews on this site are suspect(payed reviewers or company employees) as any "Pro" would walk off the job if they were told to use this mix. Head joints fall out because of low tack. You will have to constantly chop the mortar on the board to keep it workable. Do not even attempt to lay brick with this product. I should have known the "New Lower Price" was marketing spin for Inferior Product replacing the one you have been using. December 6, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by they changed the mix design Im Mason contractor , I used to use this all the time however the last year i have noticed the mortar no longer sticks the way it used to . when we were at a regular masonry supply yard a rep from this company was there and said the design is lacking lime, so i added a little ..it helped but also the cement content seems a little out to as the strength isnt what it was either , so if you want to work with mortar that doesn't stick to the head joints of blocks ..this will defiantly work ..If you want weak mortar this is the perfect product.. ..and home depot charges more for it now then the brick yards.
