Although I don't favor the alky stove for anything beyond making a cuppa or perhaps doing a very simple breakfast, in this case it shines. It doesn't take a whole lot more fuel to boil a half-litre of water than it would take to prime a brassie, and you can hardly argue the simplicity or speed. I find that one 35mm film canister of "meths" gets two fairly good cups of tea.

    Great little stove for occasional use.

    @IvanN, what's that second one? It looks a bit like my MSR, but with a better spout.
