Here are a few pictures from the R&D brewing rig showing the instant water heater/steam generator components, steam/wort mixing chamber, and control panel. Heat output measurements taken during a max output test were, 48 GPH liquid @139 deg in to mixing chamber, 300 deg steam @ 3 GPH water into coils, 188 deg liquid out of mixing chamber.

Wow, what a project. Looks magnifico!
But, can that thing make beer? Any issues with scorching wort or you hands? You must have considerable extra time on your hands not to mention acess to lots-o-stainless steel.

The system works quite well with a minimum of effort, no scorching with steam/wort mixing as steam temp is around 219 deg during 125-148 deg step. All of the hot areas are away from the control panel and electric ignition of burners takes the excitement out of the process. Installing industrial process control equipment has its advantages as the material and fabrication equipment are carried on truck and at job sites.
