"Could this be done in an industrial size coffee brewer/percolator? I have one that I use just for wassail; the spices and the vanilla bean could go in the basket, and the juice mixture would "perk" over them.

As of November 27, 2014, I can answer "yes" this can be done in a big coffee urn. I did that yesterday for breakfast for us, and it worked very well. I put the cinnamon sticks, the allspice berries and the vanilla bean (after scraping) in the basket and let the juice mixture "perk" over them. Very tasty, too."
