Have you tried an alcohol stove?
Ready to join the ultralight backpacking evolution?
Description: This workshop will lead you through making your own alcohol stove from aluminum beverage cans. Alcohol stoves are lightweight, small, and great for boiling water. They are the lightest stove a backpacker can carry and typically weight one ounce or less. They use denatured alcohol or methyl alcohol (HEET) for fuel which is easily available. You will build your own stove in this workshop and learn how to safely use it. Bring your cooking pot. You may also construct a stand and windscreen for your stove and pot. If time allows we will go outside and fire our stoves. Your workshop fee includes all materials needed to build your stove, stand and windscreen. Instructional handouts included. All materials supplied.
