    What would you do with this bottle?

    Bottle

    It's a little small for an aluminum drink container, only 8oz, but it's made of really solid aluminum and it weighs in at just over an ounce. It'd make a nice stove, but what kind?

    What would you do?

    Looks perfect for a low pressure side jet stove. Other one could be a crush resistant fuel bottle (if you do have two of them). whats the radius or diameter of the bottle?

    By the way…are the speed shot drinks any good? I've been thinking about trying them for a little while now.

    Unfortunately I've only got one. The diameter looks to be about 2". I like the fuel bottle idea. I'm still looking for the perfect alcohol stove too, though.

    I really like the side burner stoves because they eliminate the need for a pot stand if you are using a small diameter pot. They are simple and quick to make with a xacto knife and a thumb tack. The only draw back is if the stove is too wide, you can loose a lot of heat because the flames jump out wider than the base of the pot, but with a 2in diameter it should be easy to find a pot that would work. Everything you need for stove ideas and instructions are at zenstoves.net (but I'm sure you already knew that). The sight is very well organized too.

    That is a sweet little bottle, just chiming in to echo what the others said of a sturdy side burner as well as a nice bottle to store alc.

    It may be durable enough to flip over as an esbit stand.
