Ok I went for the Alpkit MytiMug which is 110 grams and holds 750ml. The 200 grams I saved by going for the titanium mug over the aluminium can be used for extra alcohol fuel.

Very fast to boil, simmers well, frugal on gas, job done.
Not really interested in gas at the moment to be honest. I want to see how light I can go with an alcohol stove. I reckon the full kit being stove, pot and windshield , under 250g!
The alpkit timymug arrived and I'm not impressed with the size. Logic tells me that only the minimalist/ultralighters will buy these, so one can also assume that these people will not be taking any other pots or pans with them and so will be solely relying on this mug for both cooking their food and brewing drinks, but the problem is you'd never be able to cook a proper sized dehydrated meal in one of these so really they are only useful for day hikes and absolutely no use whatsoever for extended trips... crap! Where the hell can I get a titanium pot just like the Alpkit, but wider and not at the stupid prices they go at. £25 was more than enough for this thing! I may have to go back to aluminium, which I'm fine with. Might just use the ****e alu pots than came with the akaslitt stove, lol.

Oh dear, I take back everything I said about the size of the Alpkit MyTiMug. After testing it in this thread here http://www.bushcraftuk.com/forum/sho...18#post1124018
I can actually say that this mug is quite the opposite being nearly 3 times big enough for cooking a large portion of dehydrated meal in.
I absolutely love this mug, I'm so glad I went ahead and bought it instead of fishing ebay for weeks.

The Etowah II stove arrived after I finally paid the extortionate customs fee after being ransomed with a royal mail card through the door. The boil times are pretty much the same as the Akasalitt although far lighter in weight. The mini brass trangia burner in the Akasalitt stove fits the outer burner pot of the Etowah II perfectly...
