Subject: water bottle (alcohol) rocket

Post:

What type of alcohol should I use for the 5 gallon bottle rocket? I've
used lighter fluid before for smaller similar demos, but someone at the
summer meeting mentioned in the show that there is something which burns
faster, at a lower temperature, and with a visible flame which was
better.

Thanks again,
RF
