Grouting with Epoxy

I am replacing one tile in my kitchen and the bag of old grout I have is no good. I need to buy a small amount of sanded grout to grout the one tile to match the rest. The rest of the floor has been done with a Chamois sanded grout. Can I buy an Epoxy grout of the same Chamois color to grout the one new tile? Will it match ok?

I would not mix epoxy with sanded grout. Besides the epoxy is hard to work with and over time even if the colors matched originally they would not stay the same. The standard grout will pick up more dirt even if it is sealed.
For one tile I would get the same grout. Since you have the old bag, that should be easy.

Some of the Grout Mfg. sell mini units.

I haven't been able to find mini units. It is Mapai grout. Any suggestions on where to get the mini units?
