    For a couple years now, I've been wanting to turn cotton balls into edible (and literal) cotton candy. It took me a while to figure out how to do it, but I finally did it!

    This is kind of a follow-up to my previous project, where I turned toiletpaper into drinkable alcohol (moonshine). In that one, I used an enzyme called cellulase, but that didn't seem to work here. So, instead, I used concentrated sulfuric acid.

I am here from William Osman's video, To everyone that puts mean comments. YOU ALL NEED TO SHUT THE HELL UP, you don't realise how much you are effecting someone's life negatively. If you don't have anything nice or constructive to say, DON'T SAY IT. No-ones needs your crap one them, if you have problems go and solve them in a way you won't hurt others and if you are mean because you find it funny I hope that one day you experience the same amount of pain others felt because of you. This is a reminder for everyone, there are no benefits to being mean, only deficits, and ruining someone's self-esteem like this is is NEVER correct. You can't hurt someone like this because you want a laugh.

A few suggestions if you decide to revisit this; 1. Try caramelizing it at the 185 degree mark. 2. Since the machine is used to table sugar instead of just breaking it into pieces grind it down with a mortar and pestle. 3. See if there's some way to adjust the temperature of the cotton candy machine if 1 and 2 don't work.

So, I recently found out that Doritos are using a new rinseaid binder, nitro tri-bromide. Theoretically, if there is any leftover bits of the binder on the chip, and if you had enough chips, you could essentially turn Doritos into bromine, wanna test my idea?

What if you did a time lapse of putting the enzyme on like a T-shirt or a pair of sweat pants, socks, other cotton things. Maybe try to make it more pure or potent since the fibers in the clothing are longer strands and probably are tougher from being spun and what not,

Problem with enzyms is their access point - Cellulase can be many things and most likely what you had was for di-saccharides. But I'm a biotechnologist engineer, so that's just my take on it. Also you're right that your down-stream process with resin often takes a good procentages of your outcome. For some proteins in big scale I have purified costed like 30 % solely from the chromatography.
