Well, the only place in town that sold the large 24oz heinekens closed down, and I need to make a new pot for my upcoming trip on the 24th! Does anyone have an extra one laying around anywhere? I'd refund the shipping charges.
ThanksSep 14, 2010 at 11:56 am #1645520Sep 14, 2010 at 12:43 pm #1645530
How many you want

Actually I only got about half of those out for people that requested them, and then got caught up in moving.
I think I owe some people some pm's! =”,jdempsey”Sep 21, 2010 at 3:10 pm #1647653
Erick, received them today, thanks a ton!Sep 22, 2010 at 6:31 am #1647837
Let me know if you ever need more. Always looking for an excuse to drink more beerSep 22, 2010 at 6:56 am #1647845
Erick, I sure could use a 2 or 3. I am down to one and Alabama does not allow beer to be sold in cans larger than 16 oz. I will gladly pay plus shipping.

Erick, it looks like you may have a business going! :)Sep 22, 2010 at 11:29 am #1647917
PM sent Dale.
I might have to higher some employees to help with this new found venture. Hmm maybe even TARP funds could be had. Or an Energy Star credit of some sort.Sep 22, 2010 at 12:11 pm #1647931

Is there already a source for Heineken cans with the top removed ala Good Cook method for use as a lid? Now that would be a good business.
I'm only asking as I found a source for the cans here in Reno, but having trouble getting the darned lid off. I butchered it on the first try. I'm gonna try the sandpaper method next.Sep 22, 2010 at 12:15 pm #1647932

I will work for you from home on the weekends. Let me know.
I doubt you would qualify for TARP…maybe TARP-TENT at best.Sep 22, 2010 at 12:58 pm #1647949

I will be more than happy to empty and cut as many Heineken or Fosters cans as you'd like, you pay all shipping.
PM me for my address.Sep 23, 2010 at 2:35 am #1648127
But I had to modify mine a bit to work. It had a plastic piece that seemed to keep it from coming in contact with cutting wheel on the side of the beer can. Once I removed the little plastic hump under the cutting wheel I was good to go.
I can remove these lids prior to shipping if you want. I'll leave the pop top unopened as wellSep 23, 2010 at 4:06 am #1648129
I thought I should introduce myself as Erick's assistant can emptier. The need for cans has escalated and Erick needed alittle help. Of course he is still the number one can emptier. I am learning.May 5, 2011 at 7:22 pm #1733560
Anybody have some 24 oz keg cans they want to get rid of?May 6, 2011 at 4:26 am #1733665
So many positive waves (quote:Kelly's Heroes-Donald Sutherland as Oddball the tank commander)! I almost didn't look at it cause I don't really use alcohol stove. I use a coffee can pot when I do. I am definitely going to have to look into this method, though! Outstanding!May 6, 2011 at 2:06 pm #1733871
If anyone needs Heineken Cans, they sell them here in Colorado so they are available everywhere. I also have the safe can opener so the edges are smooth and top fit on snug.
I don't have empty's so you would have to pay for me to drink the beer and then ship :)

So I recently found out that Heineken is phasing out the Keg Can, and instead changing all their 24oz sized beers into the straight cylinder fosters style can (without the reinforced bands that we love on the keg). I wrote this post on another thread earlier, but I figure it's related to this thread as well
"wow, so I didn't realize that they did a complete change over to Foster's style plain can. I went over to the largest liquor store in my area and asked if they had any of the "keg" style cans in stock and the guy mentioned that they were just phased out. That said, I did manage to grab some at another smaller liquor store nearby. So they are definitely out there, but are more or less on the brink of extinction. While I don't usually encourage hording…now would be the appropriate time to do so."
Conspiracy theory (the internet) suggests a combination of BPA scare/liability/and Heineken finding out that us gram nerds love to cook stuff in their cans. But who knowsMay 6, 2011 at 6:08 pm #1733966
Konrad, I am personally always up for a good conspiracy theory. My favorite saying: just because you are not paranoid doesn't mean they are not out to get you. Heineken is on to the ultra-light community!May 6, 2011 at 9:10 pm #1734036

Michael, I have one I've never used and I'm trying to minimize my gear.
PM me your address and I'll ship it out for free.May 9, 2011 at 12:53 pm #1734589
I did some checking and the Heineken Cans are 2.99 w/o taxes and per the dimensions of the can, I would need to put it in a USPS Medium Flat rate box, which would be $10.50 to ship. I could probably fit about 4-6 cans in there I assume if you wanted more then one.
This is my PIF. PM me if you want any; you will need to cover all costs.May 17, 2011 at 1:54 am #1737538
Well, it's not definitive but I am currently drinking Sapporo with the lid cut off. It's super sturdy. I don't think it's that the cans are any thicker I think it has to do with the crimping that surrounds the can. Il be building it into a mess kit tomorrow, stay tuned. It looks like a good alternative…it's 650 mlMay 17, 2011 at 10:46 am #1737673
…is hilarious.Jul 22, 2011 at 4:31 pm #1762113
Anyone know where to get Heineken Cans in Harrisburg, PA?
The PA liquor laws make it tough to buy a single can of beer or even a six pack.
Any help would be beneficial, looking to make myself a pot.
I would pay a few bucks for one or two.
