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!

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).

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 you steep in this product?
Daniel Parker on Mar 16, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hi Daniel - The DigiBoil is not intended to be used as an electric all-grain mash tun. Suspending a mesh bag or adding grain directly to the unit will obstruct the internal temperature probe, causing the unit to automatically shut off the heating elements.
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.

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.

Cheap and easy
I really enjoyed brewing with this. Easy to heat up mash water to temp. I have a mash tun so transferred it, heated up sparge then transferred it all back in. Very easy to use then hooked up a pump and counterflow chiller and was done. It has improvements on the Robobrew I've also used along with being easier to clean without the built-in pump.

I think it will be good for the price
I haven't used it yet, but it looks like a decent option IF you're just looking for an HLT. It doesn't feel particularly high quality, but you at less than 1/2 of the other electric brewing kettles you get what you pay for.

Regarding boil time, it looks like it would take about an hour to get your wort boiling if you wanted to boil in it (assuming 7 gallons, 75% efficiency and a starting temp of 140): https://www.easycalculation.com/physics/thermodynamics/water-boiling-time-calculator.php

A low cost start in to electric brewing.
I purchased the Digiboil because I wanted to move in to electric brewing, but I did not have a lot of money to spend especially all at once. The little research I did before I bought the unit said that 1500watts was on the low end but still doable (I only have access to 110volt outlet). However, the first time I used the Digiboil it took forever (2.75 hours) to get the water to strike temp. After that, I was not actually able to get the wort to a boil ( I had to bust out my propane burner). I definitely made some mistakes on this first run due to lack of experience. So, I tried again later with some improvements like a Robobrew insulated cover, and I was able to get the warm-up times down quite a bit and low boil to form. That being said I will most likely be purchasing a water bucket heater and water recirculation pump to lower my warm-ups times even more and to get a more vigorous boil. Those additions still make this a cheaper option than most other electric units out there. Overall a get unit for the price point, but may need some tweaking to get where you want it.

It works
If you're looking to turn room temperature water into hot water, this is the device for you! I use it as a HLT. I used it as a boil kettle once, but it wasn't as rapid of a boil as I'm used to getting from my propane.
