Grout Q's

I am a Grandma who learned to tile with 4 1/2 white glazed tiles and unsanded grout while on extensive mission trips. I am now tiling some small jobs with 12 and 13" heavily pitted porous porcelain tiles fom Italy and colored sanded grout. My Q is " How many times can I renew the mix with water ( it's drying out quickly) and does this weaken the grout? I kow this may sound ignorant, but I've made numerous phone calls to tile stores with untrained staff.

You can mix smaller batches of grout. If you do it this way, empty your grout bag into a 5 gallon bucket and "dry mix" it (no water), since the contents of the bag can settle and seperate. Dry mixing will keep the smaller batches of grout more uniform in color.
