You could use a foot or two for a thermowell for a remote thermometer.
Or form into a coil for an immersion or counterflow wort chiller.

I though of the IC/CFC but I keep hearing that the heat exchange rate is cr@p in comparrison to Copper (Already have an IC)... Hard Piping for a CIP system perhaps? Gas Line?...:-\

You could make gas line out of it for a brewstand.

1/4 inch is kinda small but maybe some manifolds / fly sparging equipment for AG brewing.
