supplies are as follows:

-heated pan

-three clean solo cups

-scale

-stirring spoon

-mortar and pestle

Step 2: Mixing

First you make sure to have a ratio of 70%-30% KNO3 to sucrose

Grind down the sugar and KNO3 to a very fine powder

Next weigh out 7 grams of corn syrup

Heat pan to 300 degrees

add KNO3, sucrose, and corn syrup at once and start stirring

this process will take about 5mins

Step 3: Extract

Use Stirring Spoon to gather together the substance in a clump

    Nice work! I have found that dissolving the ingredients in water helps them to mix better and produce less waste product. Also a little rust powder (kno3) will help to increase the burnrate and initial thrust as a catalyst.
