Made a SuperCat stove after forgetting brasslite at home. It did a great job of boiling 12 oz of water, but struggled w/ 16 oz. Any thoughts on what I may have done wrong? I thought maybe I need to add a hole.

John, how long did your stove burn before it burned out? Maybe the jet holes are too low, limiting the stoves fuel capacity. Did it burn out too quick? Maybe the burner holes are too big, or too many. Did it burn long but didn't boil? Maybe not enough or too small holes.

Forgot brasslite at home. You're on the trail, right.

You have a paper punch for the holes? Add another hole or two. Add an additional 5ml of fuel. You used 30ml right? another 5 should doit. Use a windscreen also.
