Grout for an antique wood brick floor


The bricks measure 4x6 and are approx. 2" deep. They need to be grouted for stability and cleaning. This is in a brew pub, so spills can happen. Would polymer paver sand do the trick? Curious just how much water will be necessary for the sand to harden. Another thought we have is Portland cement. To me, the Portland seems like it could make a real mess of the bricks. Another thought, clear garage floor coating. This idea seems good, except the only finish I could find was a high gloss. I think gloss would ruin the whole look of the floor.

Is there such a thing as grout thats specifically made for wood?

Any suggestions would be appreciated!

No clue what a wood brick floor would mean. Got a picture?

Maybe I should have called them blocks instead of bricks.

I'd be surprised if the FDA, ATF, health dept., whoever is inspecting this facility would even allow that type floor in that environment.
It would be impossible to sanitize properly.
I would think any form or grout or mortar is out because wood moves, they do not.
Only thing I can picture is a thick epoxy like decoupage to cover over the whole thing.

Well, we grouted to blocks with sakrete non shrink grout. It worked really well and stabilized it.
