Default Can I mix modified thin set and quickcrete?

Can I mix modified thin set and quickcrete? I only ask as I am mixing some modified thin set first and then i am mixing some quickcrete to fix some mortar issues. I didnt want to have to wash and clean out the buckets between mixing if possible. (I am being lazy)

I wanted to check before i do it, if it is not preferred I'll buy two buckets or something. thanks

Must be a tiny job. Depending on the compatibility of additives in the 2 different materials, there may be some problems. Such as delayed set, or little strength, or complete matrix failure.

Just go splurge, and buy a second bucket.
