Backcountry Boiler Pour Spout (in progress) on 02/27/2012 06:05:22 MST Print View

I've been playing around with some ideas on how to improve the pour with my boiler. I put together a short video of what I see with some plugs from caplugs.com and with a hacked up pour spout that I stole from a generic brand mouthwash bottle. Does anyone have other ideas?

Don
I have seen others commenting about this , however I don't have that "problem".
I can pour an oz or all of it without more than one or two drops max dripping on the boiler itself.
The trick is very simple: you always need to have an air gap between the water and the spout opening .
So at the start the tilt is very minimal and you gradually increase that.
If this is not clear I can shoot a video of that but give it a go...
