I have Country Time pink lemonade.

Wrapping with fiberglass never prevented my fingers from getting too hot. Urban Legend busted ;)

I have thoroughly enjoyed my Fancee Feest/Ridgeline pot combination this week. I was supposed to be in NC/TN all week hiking but had to sit this trip out so that my wife could go to the Dominican Republic on a mission trip. I had a number of new projects to do at work anyway. To help myself feel a little better, I burned a whole bottle of HEET in three days at my desk. My co-workers have already come to the conclusion that they never know what I am going to be doing in my office, so no surprise to them. :geek: :D
I had never used a Beer Can Pot and I didnt expect it to be so stable. It is a perfect fit. I definitely should have gotten one of the pot slap grabbers though.
Cant wait to get to the woods to do some testing outdoors.

A perfect fit is the right words. The stove is a perfect match for the Foster's. The Cobalt Soloist also works very well with it's top jets.

I'm working on a batch of 4dozen Foster's 2 cup cans. I weighed a can and lid today, 0.8 ounce Now that is uber light weight. :D

Are you heating water for a hot drink or making ramen for lunch?

I usually just boil water. I found some of the coffee Connie recommended (Nescafe Clasico) and have been drinking a lot of it. I give it a high rating. I have a ziploc container that works well for holding/protecting the fosters pot, stove and all. The Whole kit feels feather light.

Just think how light it could be if you used the Mini Fancee Feest. It weighs 8 grams. I'll make the Mini available, stove only this coming week. Remind me :D

Here is the ultimate pot for heating water:

Flat bottom that has ridges to keep stove centered. Zelph original idea.

The top of the can is left in it's original form for strength.

The bottom is light weight steel for super strength. Sealed with food grade sealant. guaranteed not to leak.

Can weighs 1 ounce

Water capacity is 20 ounce with head room for boil.

Just think of all the stoves out there that would love to meet up with the flat bottom of this can.

Bottom has a lip to prevent slide-off.

Outside diameter of bottom is 3 and 3/8 inches.

Better than the copper ones someone was making but will the sealant hold up to a wood fire?

The fire test will be conducted tomorrow.

I have 7 of the cans made and will be listed in the store on Monday. I have the process perfected. The process curls the two metals together and then compresses them very tight. I use a very thin film of sealant that is organic and fda approved. No epoxys are used.

Are you going to put the flat bottem on the 2-cup, 1-cup, on the entire Ridgeline line?

Yes, eventually. The process has been perfected. I'm learning to crawl first. Tests are necessary.

Watch how sweet the stove burns. Nice colors on it ;) stainless is much better than titanium as far as good looks.

Vertical stacked and top lit.

I'm busy tomorrow but will try to get a video made of the pot after the tests.

Here is a video of one of the tests:
