There are some new gadgets that allow to chill the beer as fast as 2 min. It's not rocket science, just a more efficient way to increase heat transfer by rotating the desired object (link below provides more details). So i was thinking about using this same principle by putting ice inside a laundry machine and then putting the wort inside a closed container. This would chill the wort very fast and there's the bonus of a massive aeration. Have anyone tried something similar? The more experienced brewers could point out some possible flaws in this approach? Thanks!
While the principal is sound, it has major flaws for wort chilling.
Major difference is volume and temp differences. 12oz / 5gal, 75°-38° / 212°-70°
Convection works on the principal that heat transfer is at a finite rate. So give the small area cooling source more exposure by moving away what has been cooled. All brew chillers do this in different ways.
Btw I'll pass on a beer that just had the crap "spun" out of it, unless you open it for me.
You can chill a beer can in 2 minutes if you submerge in ice chest filled with ice, water, salt.
I doubt they are moving the beer much to provide added exposure, rather turning the can allowing it to come in contact with ice more, than sitting there with air space. .... Just add water.
As far as wort, while using an immersion chiller many will whirlpool the wort by various means. By pump or even drill with a wine mixer. I personally don't like my wort exposed like that.
But.. If you were to put hot wort in say a corney and give it an ice bath, it would benifiet from agitation. But... That much ice is costly, and I think there are easier ways.
I see nothing that would give added aeration, since it would be limited to the air in the sealed container.
