Video: How to Make Your Own Lightweight Alcohol Stove for Backpacking

Looking to cut some weight from your pack? Want to go fast and light with the best of them? Then this video will definitely be of interest. It is a DIY project from our friends at REI who show us how to make our own alcohol stove using a soda can. It is surprisingly quick, easy, and efficient. I’m not sure it’ll replace my regular stove, but it is cool to see how this is done and see it in action.
