Last night I brewed, I’ve brewed several times now and have figured out my routine.
Fill pot with 6 gallons, stick it over both burners on the cooktop, adjust setting to “high”, go watch TV.
I am normally a pretty patient person so I tend not to stress but last night I timed the process from start to boil and it took me about 90 minutes to heat up the 6 gallons. This translates to me watching too much “storage wars” which is a downright terrible show and I don’t know why I spend my time with that.
Anyway, after last night I’ve spent my first hour in the office today researching how I can speed this process up. Of course there is the Blichmann and the Edelmetall and the other lesser burners (I’m a buy it once kind of guy so I typically try to go full nut on stuff I think I’ll use for a while). Then I thought about induction and fairly quickly ruled that out. Pretty sure I’ll be going with the Blichmann.
Then something interesting happened, I thought “The burner is only half the equation, what about the pot? What if there was a pot with heat sinks?” Lo and behold there was! This thing called a Turbo Pot.http://www.dvorsons.com/eneron/product.php?recordID=261
It looks like it’ll do the trick and it comes in plenty of sizes but I’m curious if any of you have any experience with this product or something similar? Even your general thoughts are acceptable.
It could use some refinement for brewing but that isn’t something that people haven’t done to a pot before.
