This is from my last winter trip. I just had to keep the alcohol in my pocket to warm the liquid a bit.



The stove I used is a knock-off of the MBD Elite. Instructions can be found on the video below:

Cool pic! Is your can 12 or 24oz?

Thanks

A modified starlyte burner will work well. Use 1/2" hardware cloth to form a pot support. Experiment with pot support height for max efficiency.

"Cool pic! Is your can 12 or 24oz?"

It's the 24 oz. one. However, the stove in use should work with the 12 oz. as well.

I have Dan's StarLyte stove and the mini keg and, with a suluk 46 windscreen it's my lightest setup. That said, I prefer my MSR (heavier) kettle. The flat bottom cans - like Dan's Foster's - get faster burn times, or so it seems to me. If I am doing something wrong, someone let me know.
