The Alcohol Stove is the perfect DIY accessory for your next camping trip.
“Top burning alcohol stoves are generally dependable and easy to operate, just light and wait for your food or water to heat up. They also produce a circular array of individual flames similar to a gas range. The stove shown above is made of two 12oz pop can bottoms. Twenty-four jets were drilled around the outer base of the circular ridge on top of the stove, with a #71 drill (about needle size). The bottom section of stove is 20mm tall. The top piece is about 30mm tall and the inner cylinder is 40mm wide.
Simmering is fairly easy to do and you have many options, such as placing a cutout 12oz pop can bottom with a hole cut in it (or something similar – like a piece of foil) on top of the stove.”
