I used some Iso91 alcohol in the stove to see how well it burned using a beer can pot:

Iso91 is more readily available than HEET and Denatured alcohol in quarts.

So, those of you that have Fancee Feest stoves give Iso91 a try when you find the time.

Hi.
Is there a limit to how high a stove with same diameter as the FF can be? The FF is 2-1/4 inches tall, how about 3-1/2 inches or more tall, would that work? Anyone know/tried? Would it just take longer for the fuel to "crawl" up the wick?

You want the pot support to be between 3/4"-1" from the flame origin

Thanks, good to know that the pot stand needs to be so much higher than the "outer shell" it resides in (the cat food can in case of the FF). But how high can I one make this "outer shell"? Imagine I have a cat food can that is
3 and 1/2 inches high, would that work? It there a upper limit on how high such a (food) can could be in this case?

Sure, you can go higher but then you have to start considering the stability factor.

Ok, so the stability factor is all I need to worry about then, not the "wicking factor" so to speak ...

Just got an original Fancee Feest stove by Zelph in the mail. Very nice to have one to look at (and use of course!) when I try make my own variants ... :)

Wicking height hmmmmm. I remember something about the ability of wick material to be limited to about 3 inches. Carbon felt being having the least ability to act as a wick. :o
