So what's the best way to collect Gunpowder?

I know they drop from Creepers, but there has to be a better way to collect it than running around at night hunting down Creepers.

If you're lucky and get a creeper monster spawner in a dungeon, you can create a monster trap that automatically kills them off for you, and reap the rewards.

Unfortunately there are no such thing as creeper spawners, at least not in alpha survival mode.

That's really the only reliable way to get gunpowder, but setting up a huge natural spawn trap (relies on vast open spaces of darkness to naturally spawn creepers) is time consuming.

Or you could just bite the bullet and go creeper hunting.
