Here’s a couple of images of the ultralightweight kelly kettles and alcohol
stoves I make from beer and energy drink cans for my backpacking
Capacity two cups, boils in 3.5 minutes using 12.5g of 95% pure alcohol.
Efficiency is 63%. The kettle and stove setup weighs under 3oz.
Capacity 1 cup, boils in 4 minutes is 6g of 95% pure alcohol. Efficiency is
around 67%. The kettle and stove setup weighs under 1 1/4oz

weigh under 2oz.
