Preparing for first boil

The next thing we are going to do is actually cook on the stove, this will give us an idea of how well the whole thing works together. Prepare your pot with 2 cups water. Fill the stove with .5oz (2 cap fulls), set up the stove, windscreen and pot stand. Light the stove.

First boil started

The stove will start off with the small flame - just like in the first run. Eventually the flames will get to the point that some will come around the top of the wind screen, not too much though.


Begining of boil

After 2:30 to 3:00 minutes, remove the lid and check - there should be bubbles from the boiling process forming. If not, put the lid back and check a little later.


Rolling boil

After another minute (3:30-4:00) you should have a good rolling boil going. Let the water go until the alcohol runs out, which should happen at about 5:00 to 5:30.
