Since you mentioned beer, I started listening.

Let's look at it this way. We use a computer heat sink and thermal glue. Some how the heat sink needs to be enclosed on all but the base. Remove the paint from the ballast in some particular location and glue with this, high thermal conductivity glue. Silver, I know, but there is no contact with the water.

We then just need to come up with a way to encase the heat sink with something we can plumb to. High temp silicon and lexan?

Do you have room for such a contraption?

I'm going to go open another beer, that first one was pretty good.

Check this out. If you keep the system closed I would bet there are plenty of options. As has been mentioned, you may should add another sink in the tank for heat dissipation instead of recirculation of tank water.
