    Default Testing soda can stove in freezing tems! (My DIY Stove test)

    Just wanted to share my test on my side jet alcohol stove.
    It was left to freeze overnight in a pan of water and a frozen pit of water was put on to see if it affected it. Fuel was left out too. Always looking for comments on how to improve the stove.

    Enjoy this boring video. Lol

    Default alcohol stove limitations

    Alcohol stoves don't perform too well both in low temperatures and/or high elevations. The best you can do it "pre-heat" your fuel by keeping it near your body before burning it, and make some kind of air pocket between the stove and ground when using.. still won't perform too good though.. build a stick fire.

    I have some experience with wood stoves but just wanted to see what would happen if it was frozen in ice. Work or not.
    You have great input on warming the fuel first!

    Do you have a "build along" video for the stove?
