Setting up an electric brewery in the basement and just thought about how I'm going to do decoctions when desired. I brew 5-gallon batches and so I thought maybe a portable induction cooktop would fit the bill.
I'm looking at an 1800 W induction cooktop and a 12 Qt. stainless pot with a 6010-clad bottom suitable for induction cooking. I figure the 3-gallon pot not only would fit the cooktop real well, but also would hold enough to do a decoction for a 5-gallon batch assuming I'd never pull more than, say, 2.5 gallons of thick mash. And 1800 W should be sufficient to raise the temperature of the decoction to its rest temperature, then bring it up to a boil pretty quickly.
Has anyone done this, and what are your thoughts?
