Yes, I had an old Heinikins can also. Way back when, I was shooting for SUL weights. But, I found it to be very limiting in spring/fall. I went back to UL weights and this is, by far, more convenient. Today I just use a grease pot.May 2, 2020 at 7:36 am #3644642Sam HaraldsonBPL Member

I have a whole Zelph set up (beer can pot, esbit stove) but I would only use it on a solo overnight trip since it’s so small and fragile. It barely holds a packet of ramen and you need to be very careful about not denting it.May 2, 2020 at 10:59 am #3644674”V” (CzechClown)BPL Member
Appreciate the comments.
I have posted in <b>BPL Gear Swap</b> looking for a <b><u>Zelph Fosters 2 cup, flat bottom w/ridged beer can pot. </u></b>Jun 6, 2020 at 2:24 pm #3651361Eric BlumensaadtBPL Member

I do NOT trust the material used to line beer cans as being healthful when heated to boil water. It was not designed for that purpose and no studies have been done to see what, if any, contaminants will be given off during repeated heating.
And, like James M. I use an aluminum pot, and anodized 3 cup Open Country that came with my Trail Designs ti Sidewinder stove. It is used for all seasons and all stoves, being the most efficient width-to-height ratio and the best size for solo cooking.Jun 7, 2020 at 8:41 pm #3651599M BBPL Member
Even bought some more out of last remaining stock after he quit making the flat bottom a few yrs ago.
I guess he makes it again?
The flat bottom is steel..works with brs3000 great.
