Once you make it, STEP AWAY FROM THE BOMB. If you still have plenty of time left, you can shoot the Powder Keg to make it explode instead of waiting.Once you accomplish this, talk to Biggoron again. He will reward you with the Powder Keg Certificate.Using the Powder KegOnce you get the certificate, you are free to use the Powder Keg. If you've used the Song of Time since passing Biggoron's test, you must purchase the Keg from the Goron at the Bomb Shop in West Clock Town.
