Description

The DigiBoil is a versatile electric kettle that can be used as a standalone unit or integrated into your current brew system to serve a variety of functions. Easily brew 5-gallon extract batches. Use it to preheat your strike water or sparge water to a precise temperature. Pair it with a pump and heat exchanger to use it for HERMS brewing. Or slap on a still top lid and condenser for distilling! With so many ways to use the DigiBoil, and an affordable price tag to boot, it's hard not to get excited about this electric kettle!

Interested in using the DigiBoil for all-grain brewing? With the Mash Upgrade Kit, you can easily convert the DigiBoil into an electric mash tun!

This DigiBoil model has two built-in heating elements that run off a 110V plug. One element is 1000w and the other is 500w for a combined 1500 watts! The elements can be individually controlled, allowing you to use a single element to gently hold temperatures, or engage both elements to quickly go from steeping temp to boiling. Temperatures are set and automatically maintained through the digital control panel. Simply set your desired temperature and flip on the heating element(s). 

Integrated stainless ball valve comes with a 13mm barb (approx. 1/2"). The barb can be removed to attach 1/2" FPT fittings if desired.

Features:

  • 304 stainless steel construction
  • 9 gallon total capacity
  • Digital temperature control
  • 110V / 15A power and plug (5 ft. cord)
  • Dual heating element control (1000w and 500w)
  • Heating elements are concealed for easy cleaning
  • 304 stainless steel 1/2" ball valve with 13mm barb (approx. 1/2")
  • Stamped-in volume markers (gallons & liters)
  • Stainless lid
  • Temperature reads in °F or °C
    • With elements turned off, hold both +/- buttons to switch between °F or °C
  • Compatible with reflux and pot still (DS130 DS120)*
  • External Dimensions: 29" H x 15" W (including handles)
  • Internal Dimensions: 19.5" H x 11.75" W

*Distilling: to use the DigiBoil with a distilling condenser, you will need to purchase the still top lid and gasket (DS125 & DS126).

replacement for old mash tun that I would hear sparge water in before my mash water. I hope this shortens my brew day and gives me precise sparge temperatures.

How long to reach boiling temps?
fred goeldi on Mar 14, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hi Fred - It can take up to 45min depending on the ambient temperature of the brew area.
Can this unit be equipped with a rotating racking arm such as the Ss Brew bucket replacement racking arm?
Adam Higdon on Jun 18, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hi Adam - It is definitely a possibility however, the Digiboil spigot would need to be removed and a racking arm would need fabricated to install.

Best value around. I have a robobrew and the digiboil. I prefer the larger display and simple controls of the digiboil over the robobrew.

Time saver
I bought this with my GF. It may be useful to plug into an outlet on another circuit to avoid blowing fuses. This unit is a timesaver when you consider you can have the water already heated and ready for sparging, rather than heating water on the stove, transporting it to your GF or mash tun (and having it lose temperature during sparging). It has 500W and 1000W switches-- I used the 500W switch; not sure when to use the 1000W switch..

Makes Brew Day Quicker & Easier
The weekend after I received the Digiboil I brewed 5 gallons each of a Blonde Ale, a Brown Ale and a California Common, all extract recipes with grain additions and multiple hop additions. Now I can brew anywhere without messing up my wife's stove and kitchen. Clean up is easy. I had no problem with DME and LME sticking to the bottom of the kettle. I bought a spider to replace using bags for my additions, which will make that process even easier. Overall, I'm a happy brewer with this unit.

Makes my brew day much easier!
I bought this to heat my water for mash and sparge. A couple hours before I start my brew day I poured 8 gallons of water in and set it to 170 degrees. A couple hours later I milled my grain and the water was ready to go. I use gravity so it was a breeze. I added my grains and cooled with a little cool water to get my temperature exactly where I wanted it. An hour later
I sparged at exactly the temperature I wanted for an hour or more It was so much easier that heating my water in my kettle and adding to mash and sparge. I love it!

When used in conjunction with the neoprene jacket, it brought the water to temp quickly, and was able to maintain a rolling boil.
Far exceeded my expectations.

Delivers!
This is a very well-made kettle. It delivers on what it promises. Even at 1500 W, it isn't nearly as fast as a 50-65 kBTU propane-based burner, but for sparge water, this is not a problem.

Highly Recommended
I've brewed three times using the Digiboil, and I am so very pleased with the results. The heating times are a bit longer than other units, but I find that the added neoprene jacket makes a considerable impact. With the jacket, I am able to heat my initial strike water to 165 within 1 hour, and I am able to bring that mash from 148 to a boil within 1 hour. Personally, I increase the boiling temperature to 214 to ensure that the heating elements stay on and keep the boil rolling. I brew in a bag, and I would not recommend mashing in this simply due the small diameter of the kettle. I have a spare kettle that is wider and allows for a more spread out mash and is easier to work with.

My only criticism is that the lid and lid clamps seem cheap, but I see no true purpose to having a lid on anyways. Bringing the water to strike temp, having a lid does help, I think. Once boiling, you should not have the lid on anyways.

Good intro equipment to start going electric
First brew went off pretty well. Definitely will insulate the outside to ramp up heating times and hopefully not have to use both elements to keep a strong boil going.
