I'm definitely not volunteering to write the article. Anyone who has had to suffer through my business composition would support me on that.
With that said, I'm guessing the focus should be on lower cost options to lessening the load on a brew day. The easy answer is a big brew system with pumps and PID controllers and all that stuff but the average person with kids, cars, a house and a wife/hubby is never get through the home budgeting process.
What comes to mind for are things like:
A standalone pump with a long high temp hose might work for some.
I've seen outdoor brewers who open a basement window and siphon their cooled wort from the patio to the fermenter in the basement.
Maybe a lever or balance beam system to raise the boil kettle a couple of feet so the wort can flow into a bucket. (This seemed more far fetched as I typed it.)
A cart with large wheels (like 20" used bicycle rims) to move carboys from one location to another. For those who can lift 50 - 75 lbs. but can't carry it very far.
Seems like a low tech kind of article to me. I love the Systems to Drool Over pieces but I know I won't be going that way until well after the 9 year old is out of college.
I'll stop before I ramble too much more.
