Experimenting with HEMP Lime Plaster

We’re planning to use hemp lime plaster to add some additional insulation to our walls but there’s a problem.

We don’t know if it’s possible to hot mix lime (quicklime) and hemp and we don’t know the most suitable ratio of hemp to lime when working with quicklime.

So it’s time for an experiment. We have no idea if this is going to work but we’ll do a few test mixes to see what seems to be the best. And then we’ll test our almost non-existent plastering skills. What could possibly go wrong?
