Simple instructions.

1) Take Pyrex measuring cup, measure 2 quarts of water.
2) microwave on high for 8 minutes
3) remove penny stove, set up stand indoors, out of the wind.
4) take AGG 2 quart pot from winter gear.
5) measure 1/4 oz of methyl hydrate.
6) BEEP the microwave beeped, remove pyrex cup from microwave, be careful not to burn yourself.
7) pour into agg 3 cup pot.
8) pour alcohol into penny stove and light.
9) put AGG pot on top of lit stove and cover. start watch
for scientific "boil test"
10) steam comes out rapidly!
11) Post to internet.. Ohai - I haz new stovez.

My way of getting those figures (and better) is to use my 95% dehydrated water, a patent pending product that could revolutionise the backpacking scene.
I will never release it into the market because it would obviously cause a flood of new hikers, and I am not too keen on that.

Sorry I could not insert the Wink smily in my post because Sabre has already taken up the maximum allowed per thread (MSAPT)

Yes, you are correct. I should have written "4 cups" of water, one (1) quart in three minutes. I don't know what I was thinking when I wrote that. Thanks for the heads up and slapping me in the head and waking me up !!! Thanks again...sabre11004... goodjob goodjob

You could also try to make a pressurized stove. I have found the efficiency is better with a pressure stove. http://zenstoves.net/BasicPressureBurner.htm
I had that same problem with the double wall.

Or using a pot stand. http://zenstoves.net/PotStands.htm

Or build a side burner stove. http://zenstoves.net/BasicSideBurner.htm

Because remember the smaller the distance between the jets and the pot; the less hot it will burn.

zenstoves.com is probably the best place on the net to learn about any sort of stove you may want to know about.
