If you are able to get the form out without a fire, it will give you an opportunity to touch up any interior grout...
Keep in mind, your first fires should be VERY small, growing larger over time.
I cured my dome (before insulating it) over the course of a week, after appx. 10 days from the final keystone (we had a nice stretch of warm dry weather).
I know curing is somewhat more forgiving if using thermal blankets for insulation vs pearlite concrete I used.
That was another curing process before the first render was applied..
The cool part is that we did begin using it once the insulation was fairly well cured.
Get your recipes ready!!
