It might be wise to revisit if an alcohol stove is the best choice for you. A lot of that depends on what type of backpacking you will do and what kind of cooking you will do.

Are your plans for one or two nights? Or a week at a time? Will you essentially be boiling water, or will you simmer for a long time? What altitudes will you be at? What temperatures? Will you be cooking for one or more?

I'm old school, so I don't have any answers. I haven't changed stoves in 34 years. (I wasn't actively backpacking all those years.)
