Coors Light 16oz/pint aluminum bottle. on 07/08/2012 17:35:27 MDT Print View

Anybody tried the new Coors Light 16oz. aluminum bottles as a cooking pot (or at least to just boil water in)??? They weight 1oz. empty w/cap....

I have an alcohol stove made from one...If you can burn in it I'm sure you could make a pot out of it. I think your issue is how narrow it is - it will be hard to find any burner for something with that small of a diameter that can be efficient. You're more likely to be wasting a lot of fuel burning the air around the bottle.

MILLER BEER CAN - 500ml Container - 0.92oz
Great container for water or " fuel storage". Cap is a sure seal and I have tested it in various environment conditions and attitudes...
