the cooling comes more from the wort chiller, and ice water. The blender does a little to move the wort around. The negative part is it stirs up all the materials that settled out.

I used a hand held blender this past weekend to cool the wort, and it really sped things up. I don't have a chiller, and with that and an ice bath, the 2.5 gallons I had cooled within ~20 min.

Wife's got a Bosch Mixxo that's two piece and the mixing part is dishwasher safe. Suppose I could stick it in on the antibacterial setting along with the other post boil stuff.

At what temperature do you start mixing?
Do you do any additional aeration?

Have yet to try it, but since the business end is dishwasher safe then you can soak it or dunk it in the boil. Im planning on using it with my ic to speed up cooling.

As I was vigorously stirring today trying to get my wort down to pitch temp I was thinking about something like the stick blender. Actually a drill motor with some sort of attachment. Hmmmmm...still thinking about it. ~Diz

A attachment for a drill may be a paint mixer. I have used one to mix large batches of pancake batter for a high school graduation party and it worked great for that.

What about the temperature? Do you start using the mixer right after flame-out or wait until the wort has cooled a bit?

The mixing tool will work fine to aerate the cooled wort. Under 80 degrees.

I don't recommend doing this to help cool.

You should be very careful to not add oxygen to your wort or mash above 80 degrees.
