Exploding milk powder

This is how we spent some of our afternoon (link if the embedded video isn’t working for you). What started as a simple fire to get rid of grass and wood rubbish became an experiment in which powdered foods would combust most spectacularly. Not included in this clip is the rather lame gravy granules experiment.

Dust explosions are quite common and, in confined spaces, powerful. So don’t try this at home children.
