Ultralighters are recyclers. This thread was inspired by the thread on using material from two Fosters cans as windscreen material.

Here are some of my MYOG can pots. Still experimenting to see if blackening all or part of the cans helps absorb heat to increase efficiency and reduce boil times.can pots

No beer? on 02/01/2013 17:43:48 MST Print View

Too bad, I was hoping this thread was about the lightest way to get 24oz of Brewski into the wilderness..

Max,

" I was hoping this thread was about the lightest way to get 24oz of Brewski into the wilderness."

It was an unexpected surprise on our last outing, but my hiking buddy carried two 16oz cans in his pack all day. He pulled them out after we set up camp and began to cook supper.

Simple answer, let someone else carry it. ;-)

Party On,

Newton

No, it's about how to justify drinking beer to create raw material for backpacking equipment : )

Travis, I read Pat's website a couple of weeks ago. I commend his innovation but I think it will be impractical for any group fewer than four. Did you look at his video on producing carbonated drinks? I think we beer drinkers will have to go through the same drill.

Richard, I agree that it looks a bit fiddly, and they misspelled time "lapse" twice in the video. Sorry, had to complain. :P However, I think if you were well practiced, it wouldn't seem that bad.

While this would for sure be a luxury item for UL'ers, it doesn't seem like the weight penalty would be too high. Besides the concentrate and powder mix, you have the bottle, which could easily substitute for your regular water bottle. I'm interested to hear how the beer reviews end up.

My apologies to John for the thread drift. (but I guess It's still "Beer Gear!")

There's always the Burton Beeracuda. Might be a little unwieldy but could always be strapped to a pack. Beeracuda

Beer on 02/02/2013 05:15:59 MST Print View

A buddy and I packed in 12 glass bottles of beer 10 miles in a few hours to a camspite on Glastenbury Mountain in VT. The next day, we trekked 12 empties another fifteen. He carried a lot more than I did, but at the time, he was the backpacker and I was just the bike tourist...

We made a thru-hiker's night, though.

I've loaded my pit bull up with 8 beers in his doggy backpack. I also love that there are good quality microbrews in cans now.

Let Someone Else Carry It on 02/02/2013 12:39:26 MST Print View

Years ago on a solo thru hike from Kearsarge Pass to Mt. Whitney on the JMT, as I was setting up camp near my exit point at Whitney Portal, a day-hiking couple coming down from the peak passed my camp. The lady was limping. Her boyfriend said she had twisted her ankle and needed an ace bandage, for which he would gladly trade the six pack of beer he was carrying. It appeared to be the only thing they had brought with them. Luckily for me I had an extra ace bandage. All I had to carry was the empty cans downhill the next day.

Next, Newton will be trying to show us a custom lid made from a snuff can top.

Hi Bob,

The snuff can lids are too small for cook pot lids but...

Snuff Can Lid ear rings ;-)

Do you take clip-ons or pierced? ;-)
