    How to make a Pepsi can stove.

    First get two Pepsi cans. They need to be pepsi brand. Pepsi uses good aluminum, and the bottoms of the can line up with the liner better.
    Next take a brillo pad or steel wool and rub off all the label on the bottoms of the two pepsi cans. It works better if you leave them full for this,that way you dont dent/crush the cans. You can also do the redbull can, although its not necessary because its hidden inside the finished stove.

    Next, you get ready for the ultimate caffeine buzz as you drink off the two pepsi's and the redbull. WHOOHOOO.

    Empty out one of the Pepsi cans, and use a hole saw to drill out the middle of the bottom. You can also score it around with a knife, and then use needle nose to tear it out, but the hole saw is much easier.

    Cut the tops off the cans, and use a black magic marker to draw a line around the two cans. Try to make them level. I usually rest the marker on top of a couple books and then spin the can to make it a nice straight level line.

    Use some scissors to cut the can around the line. Be careful. The aluminum is very VERY sharp, and will cut you all to pieces. Take your time and get it right.

    Now mark the red bull can 1/4" higher than the bottom of the stove can. This is so the liner seals good against the top of the stove, and stays in place.
