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)

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.
Hope this is not a repeat question. I recently purchased the 9.5 gal kettle to start all grain brewing and noticed that there is a small hole in the lid but can't find anything that said what it was for. So, not to sound like a real beginner but I am, what is the small hole in the lid for? To defend myself early, there are dumb question but dumb question come from uneducated people working to become educated. And that's not stupid its smart.
Richard Peterson on Dec 18, 2020
BEST ANSWER: We are here to help. There is a ton to learn and every homebrewer I've met wants everyone to make excellent beer and have fun doing it.

The hole in the lid is for letting out steam while bringing the kettle to a boil so you can keep the lid on and save some of the heat while still venting the steam in a responsible way. Once the boil starts in earnest you will want to remove the lid entirely so that all of the steam escapes easily and quickly. That is a very important step in brewing because of chemical reactions that happen during the boil.

Always feel free to ask everyone you can for advice. I've learned as much from new brewers as from veterans.
Hello. Would it be possible to connect a bazooka screen to the existing ball valve?
Stefan Mueller on Oct 2, 2020
BEST ANSWER: You could, but you would have to buy a 6 inch bazooka screen with a 1/2” female adapter or add a 1/2” female coupling for a 6” bazooka screen with a 1/2” male adapter.
Could the 9.25 gal digiboil be used for Brew In A Bag?
Joe Shevlin on Mar 2, 2021
BEST ANSWER: Yes, I used a mesh nylon bag in it for many brews with really good success. I eventually purchased the malt pipe-up grade kit and stoped using the bag. I would also suggest purchasing the insulated jacket and maybe a small recirculation pump. They helped me lower my heating times a great deal.
Can I add a quick disconnect to the valve spigot?
John Barraza on Mar 28, 2021
BEST ANSWER: The valve spigot is versatile enough to accept and .5 inch female threaded connectors of your choice. I’m still trying to figure out a solution for a pickup tube as the spigot is very specific to the kettle, othe ball style valves have not worked
Is there any attachment cooling coil that would work with this unit or is an immersion chiller my only option?
Devlin Laurenson on Mar 16, 2021
BEST ANSWER: I don't think they make an upgrade kit for this that adds cooling. You'll likely want to invest is some of the more expensive versions of this kind of system for that. However, you could set this up with a plate chiller and a pump if you wanted to do something other than immersion.
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.

Can't beat it for the price. The temp control wanders a few degrees +/- but not that big of a deal. Added a circulation pump and spray head for a full circulation brew in a basket system. Now if they made a SS conical fermenter in that price range, I'd be happy.

Nice unit but I'm still adjusting to it
I've been brewing ale for over 15 years using a natural gas burner and a 8.5 gallon kettle. We had problems with our gas lines so I converted to electricity. This is a much more compact unit than my previous setup. I knew I had to replace my wort chiller, but the recommended one (AG 477) was too short. I got on line with More Beer staff and settled on WC 50 which is tall enough to reach the bottom of the unit. I like having the temperature digitally controlled, but I discovered that I needed to set the boiling temp to 208 degrees rather than 212, the boiling point of water. 212 led to a boil-over with a mess to clean up. I had to upgrade my tubing from 3/8" to 1/2" for both the digiboil and the wort chiller as well as getting two female and one male adapters to connect the tubes to the wort chiller and my water supply.. The upgrade sped up the amount of time it took to chill the wort. I made the mistake of using the digital thermometer to determine the temp for cooling the wort. There was a 20-degree discrepancy between the digital reading and the temp in my fermenter. I either need to use my old-school thermometer to check the temp or sterilize a long spoon to stir the wort for a more accurate reading. The hop spider was a great additon for keeping grains and hops away from the heating coils. I just did a taste test of my first batch of ale. It came out fine. My second batch is in the fermenter as I write this. Knowing what I know now, I'm looking forward to brewing my third batch. It's a nice unit to work with once you make some adjustments.

Needs A Better Ball Valve Spigot
Great temperature control for mashing and sparging. I replace the included cheap spigot with a straight line ball valve.

So far, so good!
I purchased the DigiBoil to use as a HLT and so far it's doing a great job. It's nice having the extra volume over my 5 gallon cooler, not to mention the temperature control. I only wish it heated the water a bit faster, but that's a pretty easy work-around!

It doesn’t heat the water up quickly but works well to heat water to mash and sparge in a cooler. Still use propane to boil though.

110V version takes some time to get to boiling temperature. High-quality build, digital thermometer is accurate and easy to clean (quick overnight soak in PBW does the trick).
