Weird science

AlcoholFlame1My son found a video on YouTube about how to build an Alcohol stove using soda cans. He decided that life would not be complete if he did not attempt to create this particular stove on this particular day. So, he did, with just a [very] little help from his parents.

When he finished putting the soda stove together, it was time to add the alcohol and set it afire. Dad is the pyrotech, so I let him do the honors of helping our son light his fire. With protective eye gear, naturally.

Just lighting it on fire is not the only test one must perform on a stove! This calls for cooking something, too. BBQ baked beans, of course.


I’m not sure who was beaming more, my hubby or my son.
