Bomb making for beginners..................

Ingredients-
4 litres hot water
700g sugar
Juice and grated peel of four lemons
2 tablespoons cider vinegar
About 15 elderflower heads, in full bloom
A pinch of dried yeast
6 Grolsch style sealable bottles
Method:-
1. Put the hot water and sugar into a 20 litre clean bucket and stir until the sugar dissolves, then top up with cold water so you have 6 litres of liquid in total.
2. Add the lemon juice and grated peel, a pinch of dried yeast ,the vinegar and the flower heads and stir gently.
3. Cover with clean muslin and leave to ferment in a cool, airy place for a week, checking occasionally.
4. Strain and decant into Grolsch style sealable bottles and seal.
5. Leave to ferment in the bottles for at least a week and place where you would like the desired explosion. A pretty impressive explosion with shards of broken glass everywhere should take place during the week.
6. If you want to avoid the explosion, vent (release the cap) every day and a reasonable sparkling champagne style drink is produced in 10 days.

There isn't any method - just mix and stir.
This was a well-known practical joke when I did 'A' level chemistry.

I remember doing this at the end of my 'O' Level year  - we had a 'good' chemistry teacher. Crazy

Great fun with it spreading it around the school and public library when in 5th form. When I taught Chemistry I made sure I didn't tell them how to make the stuff but had good fun demonstrating it. Got a call from the local pharmacist once as one of the pupils was trying to buy Iodine and Ammonia solution. He had told him that the school had run out and that I had sent him. Also used to enjoy mixing hydrogen and oxygen in a plastic bottle and firing it across the lab.

I received a clip round the ear from our local bobby for messing with thermite in a public place.
The steps of the local cop shop was a target for my Nitrogen Triiodide.
I tried to stop my friends from doing it but they wouldn't listen.

At age 13 I discovered that using a bluet gas stove to evaporate weed killer and sugar solution in a tin can was not the best method of concentrating the fluid. Shortly afterwards my mum was deeply suspicious of the clouds of smoke, fortunately she didn't see the smouldering timbers above her head.
