Yup. It's impact to home brewing is not understood very well, so I'm just erring on the side of caution. Probably not a big deal though.

I always try my best to eliminate aeration until I get my temps below 90

What about a stir plate situated under the kettle with a stir rod on the inside. Might be a very cheap option. You just have to make it suitable for high temps.

Also as writing this I think you may have issues with magnets???...

Don't think that would work with a metal boil kettle, ferrous or no. Assuming it did though, that would keep all the break in suspension when what I want is for it to settle out into a nice cone.

Rip a windshield motor from a car, it is a low rpm motor with reasonable torque. The one I have works on DC so to vary the speed I just switch DC volt adapters.

I personally think a pump is a better solution. But, if u want to try a paddle, this is the way I would go.

For a cheap foodgrade high temp pump, I have heard of people using dishwasher pumps.

I will look into these also. Thanks. The dishwasher pump seems like a natural fit. I'm not bent on paddles, I'm just assuming (perhaps incorrectly) that a low rpm dc motor will be the most cost effective route.
