You can go as much as 1/1 sand/cement for more strength but it's less insulating.
Our favorite recipe is, first mix 7 gal water with 94lbs cement. Then expand the volume with foam to make a total of 43 gallons of aircrete.
@hajjargibran That is 25 inches in a plastic 55 gallon barrel or 30 inches to make 43 gallons?
