I believe you are supposed to use animal feed molasses which has sulfur in it for rust removal, not human food grade stuff. I looked for some at my Tractor Supply but they didn t have it.

Yes. An Amish farmer I used to work for used it for rust removal, but it was animal feel molasses that we used to mix with oats to make “sweet feed”. But that was a long time ago. Might be hard to find in this millenium. I didn’t know about the explosion risk though, just the rust removal. He just left it in an open bucket. Maybe he knew not to seal it.
