The best web-based resource for makers of hobby fireworks is Passfire. You can get a trial subscription for no cost.  A new subscription will cost $50 for 6 issues with renewals costing $25 for 6 additional issues.  This modest cost will bring you 6 issues, describing many interesting techniques, access a lively forum, and a wealth of pyro information.  There is an archive of how-to articles from the past 6 or 7 years.  The formula database has many tried and true formulas along with a dynamic calculator that allows you to determine the exact quantity needed for each component for any size batch.  Finally the forum provides answers to your specific questions from the best minds in the field of hobby fireworks.

A Consumer Guide to Fireworks and Firework Safety is also available. Actually the linked site has a mix of interesting information applicable to both the United Sates, Canada, and Great Britian. Primarily a place where individuals can post complaints, the referenced information related to fireworks may be of value.

As additional web sites are identified they will be added.  Please send me any comments, suggestions, or notification of web link errors.
