Got our hands on an Origo 3000 alcohol stove! Will be experimenting with this in the coming days. It's in a very good condition :>.
@rek That is lovely! Please tell us how you find alcohol compares to propane for cooking. I’ve been thinking of switching.
@Shufei Will do! We'll go look for some alcohol for it tomorrow :>.
@rek Ta! And PS: if you find a good cheap distributor in NorthAm for bulk supply, please let me know. Cooking alcohol is weirdly harder to source than propane, at least for daily use.
@rek thought it was a turn table set for a second. Interested to here out it works out!
@rek Brn is gonna get tipsy
@rek Great find! I tried to get my hands on one of the single burners once.
@dualhammers An Origo you mean? If i hadn't found this one, i would have looked for single burners. Yea I didn't expect to find one so quickly! I supposed a lot of ppl had them, but weren't using them... which was the case for this one. Was accumulating dust.
@rek People love the convenience of propane and propane accessories.
@dualhammers i'm sad i know that reference
@rek alcohol stove?! Can it run on everclear?
@Lambdanaut If it's 95% pure, then yea?
@rek I had no idea this existed and I'm amazed.
It's so beautiful too,
@Lambdanaut Yesterday Devine shined the top so it's even nicer now :D. I was aware it existed before, but never read much about it. Also, it's increasingly rarer on boats, though it's super common in camping.
@rek Hmmmm. Wonder how hard it would be to brew your own fuel.
@kor I've read about people doing it. Though you need a big enough space to do it in, and some places require permits to distill ethanol, I think? Takes 3-10 days.
