Caulking Vinyl Clad window to Brick

I need to caulk my Vinyl clad windows to the brick. I am looking to use the best product on the market to finish the job. Normally I use Tremco 830, since looking at the MSDA sheet I don't see adherence to brick, so I am thinking that 830 may not be the best product.

I am in Southern Ontario, Canada climate wise. What is the best product to use and what makes a good caulking?

Please advise thanks

Use a good polyurethane caulk such a "Vulkem" (also a tremco product) or "Quad".

What he said, urethane or siliconized latex, both stick to most anything. No silicone, it will not stick to vinyl.
