Greetings from Hull.
By way of hello here's my 49p 38g meths stove. Made recently from a hairdressers spray bottle. Think it was from home bargains.
Pleased to say that it works! Boiled 500ml of water in about 5:30.

Anyway, i'm signed up for the WRT so it'll be getting used then if not before.

Does the flame turn blue with a pot on? I'm assuming you're putting the pot straight on top of the stove?

This is the stove last night brewing up. Little yellow tips to the flames but no soot on bottom of pan afterwards:

My first stove was a pop can one, worked fine but rather fuel hungry.

Thanks very much. Not sure how thirsty this is. Will have to work out fuel consumption at some point.
I know that it boils a brews worth of water in about half the time of my stainless tatonka burner!

Thanks norm. Any tips on a suitable container to turn into an 8g stove clone?
