You mention the word "pour" below, but from my reading and it makes sense,the less moisture in the mix the less cracks and shrinkage upon drying. You can always fill in small cracks though. Could you expand on what you mean by pour. Some people might get confused. A rammed earthen floor would give you the strongest, especially if you gave it about a 14% slaked lime content. The ash you use sounds like a good additive to.
