They do swivel ..and stack on top of each other.I was thinking of some kind of windscreen attached to those to do the same thing,all stack on one side..It's too big being a 24OZ(burns forever!)..just something to play with.Question..Do any other cans have the recessed ring between the diameter of the 12OZ and 24OZ heinekins?Just a clone experiment...Before I touch up the green band for width to not show,jb weld,and clean it up..I'm just making sure it'll burn like I want or scrap it..I'll have to do some more "Heinekin research" and get some more cans. ;) The wife can't argue with that!

Use the small keg cans. Wasn't there an Irish beer that had a small keg can?

That's what I was wondering..I don't mind drinking Heinekin but I may as well go out and buy a decent canister stove for what heinekin costs around here(about $10-11 a six)...and I'm used to buying my beer in bottles(Beck's,MacTarnahan's Amber Ale.) :mrgreen:

We can buy 6...24oz.cans for what you pay for 12 oz. out your way. Hamms use to have a barrel/keg can years ago. You can find them listed on ebay. I think they are steel. I'm surprised no one has made a root beer in a barrel type can. Cost is probably too high !
