- Jan 4, 2009OK, Jeff, exactly how did you make this stove? That's a great boil time. I have a JetBoil that's a gift from a friend but due to its weight and questionable availability of its fuel on the AT I'm sticking with a homemade alcohol stove. I've been planning to make a penny stove but my husband balks at buying Heineken when MGD is so much cheaper :-) I have a Pepsi-can stove that works but it takes twice as long to boil as the creation you describe. Can you steer me?

This thread motivated me to make my first cat stove. I made one from a
steel 3oz can I had in the cabinet and a Red Bull can. Boiled 16 oz
water in just over 4 min...probably the fastest I've ever had with an
alcohol stove. I like that I don't need a pot stand with it...this may
replace my JetBoil on some hikes. Maybe... :D
