Turning Bat Poop into Fireworks

Happy 4th of July! To celebrate I attempted to make my own fireworks starting from sulfur from an abandoned mine in California, bat guano, charcoal, corn, and bamboo! This video doesn't contain the actual production and assembly of the fireworks, just the collecting of ingredients and the final result. The assembly video will be released in the next couple days, with no monetization.
Pyrotechnics can be very dangerous, please don't consider trying to do this yourself. If you are interested, find an local pyrotechnic organization here: http://www.pgi.org/links/clubs.php
We're hoping we can avoid demonization by splitting this video, but please consider supporting us on Patreon so we are able to take risks like this video again in the future!

|| ABOUT ||
Today, getting what you need is as easy as a trip to the store. From food to clothing, energy, medicine, and so much more, Andy George will discover what it takes to make everything from scratch. His mission is to understand the complex processes of manufacturing that is often taken for granted and do it all himself. Each week he’s traveling the world to bypass the modern supply chain in order to harvest raw materials straight from the source. Along the way, he’s answering the questions you never thought to ask.
