I just finished making my first lightweight alcohol stove. I have been testing it using 70% ethyl rubbing alcohol ($1.69 for a pint at Martin's in MD) and it took about 15 min to get a cup of water to boil. It does burn clean unlike the isopropyl I tried first...should've known better . I am wondering if this is adequate, or if I should look into getting denatured alcohol from the hardware store (I assume it would have a higher alcohol/lower water content). Pretty much just curious as to what people use because 15 min to boil a cup of water seems like a pretty long time.
