> a wine cap could be to small to get 500ml boiled.
True. Who mentioned 500ml, though? A wine cap burner works quite nicely with a small mug, since it provides a small flame.
If you want a slightly bigger burner, use the foil cap from an olive oil bottle (remove the plastic insert first).
> And the attic insulation is mineral wool then not the glass wool kind.
I've no idea what his attic insulation is. Glass wool and mineral wool are both used, and neither is particularly fun to play with.

Yes; it doesn't burn, but, in fact, acquires a firm 'crust', becoming more stable once it's been fired.

No idea, but, essentially, it's not getting very hot, apart from a very thin surface layer; it's simply providing a large evaporative surface and fuel retaining function.

Yes I realize this ain't the most sensible thread but the fun part got me thinking on some poor-mens scouting solution to boil water and cook. And now I konow everything about it thanks. You'll also need 3- 4 stakes to keep your pot above the cup.
Or you could use small rocks as a pot stand.
Bleddy hell, I just set my loft on fire!
Fortunately the economic downturn coupled with red weather warning meant that the unfixed hole in my roof provided a sprinkler system to extinguish it.

I use one, but what is the wadding supposed to do?
