    A quick google search isn't giving any results.

    Your best bet would probably be to contact the manufacturer. You'll be asking what the 'flame temperature' or 'adiabatic flame temperature' is.

    If you know the chemical composition, I may be able to come up with a first cut approximation for you if that doesn't work.

    We are thinking about using eathanol. with a gallon of fuel, and a 3" diameter... single stages estimates are around 17,000 feet so that's what we want to do.
