Welcome to IFI, check out forges 101 thread. Bricks take a long time and use up a lot of fuel to heat up if they're hard firebrick and If they're soft firebrick they won't stand up to the rapid heating and cooling in a forge for very long. Kaowool and castable refractory are the way to go. Someone with a lot more experience will be by to help you before long. Good luck and welcome to the addiction.
