Got a couple of questions for you guys. Im thinking about making a partially double walled foster beer can pot. The plan is to cut down a full size can, and press the 2 resulting halves to form a doublewalled (for integrity, not insulation purposes) smaller fosters can. To help visualize it, this is what I would do. Take a safety cutter, and cut off the lid, and set aside. Then cut the pot right into the middle, and "squish" the upper half down around the lower (what will become the inner wall) half. Aim is to to try to make it hold a wee bit over 1.5 cups
My question is this...do you think the pressing of the two halves together will result in a nice enough seal that I won't have to worry about water coming inbetween the walls? The seam will be at the very top of the pot. Since its capacity will be a bit over 1.5, I will just fill the pot w/ water, so that its a hair below the seam, and will still be 1.5 cups. My only worries are that when the water boils, some of it will leap up and into the seam.
I know minibulldesigns claims to use food grade epoxy for any sealing of pots. Not sure where to find this, but I assume it'll work.
My other option, is to just to use a heineken keg can. Not the 24oz ones that everone uses, but rather the lil ones you find in a 6 pack. Only problem is, my current safety can opener won't grab cans this small. I think I can mod it to work...anyone ever use a safety cutter on these smaller keg cans?
