Hi Pal,

Depends on wall, but as a rule of thumb if you can press with a knuckle and only leave a dent your good to go, often top half will dry quicker than the bottom, if it starts dragging clumps pop the kettle on and finish half hour later while enjoying a brew. If it’s first go at lime float, then devil at least 30 mins later. It is possible to do it in one hit but can easily cause issues.
