This is what i did, but why does the skewer should flare up, bursting into flame?Pour some hydrogen peroxide into the glass. Sprinkle some of the yeast into the peroxide and give it a stir. Very quickly you will see bubbles rising, producing foam on top of the liquid.Light the end of the wooden skewer, and let it burn for a moment. Then blow out the flame. If you blow gently on the burning end, you should see a red glow. It is still burning, but not flaming. Carefully bring the glowing end of the skewer up to the larger bubbles in the foam.The skewer should flare up, bursting into flame.http://www.thenakedscientists.com/forum/index.php?topic=6730.msg174769#msg174769
