Using thinset as grout


Can anybody tell me whether I can use the same thinset that I use to install the floor tiles as grout. If not, what is the disadvantage. If yes, 1/4 inch of grout space is good?

Grout and mortar are different compositions. I don't know why, but I sure wouldn't take the risk just to save a few bucks on an otherwise expensive job.

1/4" spacing is good if you like the looks of that. Within reason (1/8" to 1/2"), it's a matter of personal taste.
