I have absolutely used beer cans to make bear alarms around my tent. Worked like a charm!

All these tips are good except for the survival beer can. For less than the price of a 6-pack you can buy a resealable water-proof container to put survival gear in, and not have to worry about slicing yourself open on the very thin, sharp edge of the hole in the beer can. Heck, even a ziplock baggy would be better than the beer can for that.

I have made about a dozen of the Stoves with little jets, cut, bottom off leaving about 1", repeat with another can. grab piece of fiberglass insulation, place between the two bottom pieces and fit together. Use a nail and punch in jet holes around outside about every 1/2", punch 4 holes in center of bottom. Fill with heat/lighter fluid/Rubbing Alohol. Burns for 10 to 20 minutes, great heat source/cooking source.
