It would be so kewl to have. If one had the ss manipulation technology
and a steam boiler you could brew up a grand ole storm.
I think some elements of this can be useful for designing a home brewery.
The idea of the external heater for boiling for example. This may make the design of an electric brewery simpler. Use a pump to pump wort through a heated pipe to heat and boil the wort. The outlet may be above the wort level and may be deflected to create a large surface for evaporation. Note that you’ll have to pay attention to the heat density in the heated section. A simple 10 inch piece of copper pipe won’t work. Once boiling is complete the same system, with a different wort entry into the kettle, can be used to start a whirlpool.
If the pump can also handle mash you may be able to use the same kettle to for mashing.
Heating wort only in the center of the kettle or having a device that promotes bubble formation in the center would be nice. This would provide a nice “boil fountain” for even wort circulation.
A Stromboil (internal cooker) like device could be a kettle insert for electrical boiling. You would make an electric heating element that promotes wort flow from its bottom to its top and that thing could be inserted into the boil kettle. When you are done boiling you remove the thing and start chilling.
