I'm just not a fan of alcohol for lots of reasons you've already heard. That said, for your test to be valid, I assume you used the exact same pot? I'm not surprised by the results, however.

BTW, in real life, the only way to boil water is with the lid on. Makes a huge difference in time to boil.

I also don't think a higher BTU gas burner is necessarily cheating, it simply demonstrates how one can put more power to the job vs. alcohol.

The reason I said I don't think it would have been unfair to measure against a larger propane burner is that one has limited choices to create more BTUs with alcohol than they do with propane. If you want more BTUs, faster boil times, etc, get a bigger propane burner.
