I know people's cooking setups are talked about quite frequently but I just recently made a new alcohol stove, a design I haven't seen elsewhere, but am curious if this has been made before. Check the video.
I ran a bunch of tests on this stove along with a gram weenie, cat can, smaller diameter cat can (out of an aluminum hairspray bottle, same sized holes with hole punch, an even smaller diameter cat can (same method as last), another stove similar to my new design and so far mine boils water quicker with less alcohol. My testing showed that my stove boils 1.5 cups water in 4.5 minutes (in kitchen setting, no windscreen, no lid, and cold tap water) with 15 mL (1/2 fl oz) alcohol and burnt out at 5.25 minutes. The cat can stove boiled the same amount of water in 4 minutes but with 22 mL (3/4 fl oz) alcohol and burnt out at 5.5 minutes. The gram weenie boiled 1.5 cups water in 5.5 minutes with 15 mL alcohol and burnt out at 6 minutes.
The video isn't of these tests but of my kit that I'll be taking on my PCT thru this year.
