I have made my first alcohol stoves and find that it takes 15 minute to get to a boil that can best be described as flaccid. This required filling the stove (got the design from Zenstoves, 30cm tall) all the way, and the boil only lasted for a few minutes until the fuel (denatured alcohol) ran out. Any suggestions on how to improve this?
Right now, I am looking at the option of doubling up. Taking a Crux canister stove out for longer cooking and using the acohol stove for simmering. We all have something we will carry extra weight for, and food is mine. I am willing to sacrifice a few ounces for my meals.
