Answer

You will be fine if the brick is just along the top (edges?) of the foundation. If you were completely coating the foundation with new mortar, you may have issues or if you were putting excessive weight on top of it; neither of it you appear to be doing.

Way too coarse for a sand mix
Quality :

Some of the aggregate (in addition to the sand) is way too coarse for a sand mix. It's impossible to smooth with a trowel. I actually had to sift out the sand and aggreagate, pick out the large chunks and put some of the sand back in before I could use it. The sand itself needs to be finer and get rid of the pebbles and chunks.

In response to people saying there were pebbles in their mix, I didn’t see a single pebble. I used this for my concrete countertops and it worked out great.

This product use to be very good. It use to be made of cement and sand to the point it was consistent to powder and a few pebbles here and there. BUT now it horrible, it say it’s a sand mix, but it’s also mixed with broken pieces of rocks. I have been buying this sand mix for 4 years each year and I have never seen broken rock pieces. I use to could pick out the pebbles easily, but this with these stupid broken rocks, now it impossible and I can’t even smooth out the cement. They need to go back to the regular materials they used, not this horrible stuff.

I used it to create a mortar bed underneath an acrylic bathtub I'm installing. The only gripe I have about it is that it did indeed have a few pebbles in it. They were small in terms of pebbles...but large enough to notice....Sand mix should be sand....and not have any kind of pebbles in it. Anyways, easy to mix in a 5 gallon bucket. Eyeballed the water till I got a nice wet beach sand consistency and set the tub perfectly fine.

I had to remove my old concrete block steps because we moved my back door to my screened in porch.. I only needed a 2" thick slab because some of the block is still below the finished floor the Sakrete sand mix did the trick it mixed very easy with a consistent blend from the (2) bags I needed. Even that your not going to see it after I put my finish floor down you always have to start with a strong foundation that will not crumble.
