For many years I have been an ESBIT convert. Lately however I have started to become annoyed about the black residue on my pot, which makes everything in one of my stuffsacks dirty. So I have been thinking of changing over to alcohol.
Now recently I read a post here saying that the author wanted to use a maximum of 14g of alcohol in order to get the same weight performence as ESBIT. Good idea, but how the h"&l do you measure exactly 14g of alcohol in the field? On my kitchen sink it is easy with the help of a digital scale. Using ESBIT in the field it is also easy to exactly meassure 14g of ESBIT every time, since ESBIT is solid.
So what to do with alcohol? Taking 14g dropper bottles would work, but you'd certainly loose your weights advantage over ESBIT. Eyeballing it, you'd never even come close to 14g, so how do you use small amounts of alcohol in the field?
