Having used many different types of alcohol stoves, I highly recommend Roy Robinson's Cat Stove. This stove has beat, hands down, any other homemade alcohol stove I have used or built. It is very easy to make, but unfortunately you will have to recycle the beer cans and go buy some cat food cans. ;)
Here is the website:
Oh, the guys on BPL aren't that bad - many of them are here as well.

I know this is an old topic, which is why I am not posting it on
Backpacking Light. Huge group, not as friendly, would probably be
told to check archives, and I did, but that is very tedious. Its
going to storm here this weekend, which means no kayaking. I have
saved some pop...OK...honestly...BEER...cans and other cans and
thought I would try making an alcohol stove this weekend. There are
jillions of directions on the internet. Do any of you have a favorite
to recommend? (I checked Ebay and they are either $30 or heavy.If I
am going to spend $30 I will buy one from my friends Brawny and
Rainmaker at Trailquest, but my political job runs out in January and
I am watching money very carefully.) I have basic tools on hand.
