Minor Repairs to Brick Wall

I need to repair a brick wall that has the usual small cracks in the mortar.

Question: Should I use the redi-mix that comes in a bottle or should I use a powder mix (just add water)?

Thanks!

Here is a link to Tuck Pointing, the process of repairing mortar in brick walls. It goes into a lot of detail. Essentially, the cracks are better repaired by removing some of the mortar and reapplying mortar.

Hope this helps.
