I recently decided to attempt and make my own bp. I am making sulfurless bp, mostly for fuse. I just made a quick batch with a motor and pestel for about 2 minutes. This made terrible bp as expected, but this was just to make sure the stuff would burn. I have some questions. My bp leaves a white powders residue after it burns. What could cause this? Leftover KNO3? Also after a bonfire there are black logs left over. I have been using this as my charcoal. We don't let our fires totally burn out, so could this actually be charcoal. What does charcoal feel like? And how can i identify it from the regular ash? Thanks for your help.
