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.

The DigiBoil is also an excellent choice for candle making. It quickly melts wax and holds the temperature needed to prevent the wax from solidifying.

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 (DS124).

Warning: Distilling alcohol without permits or licensing is illegal in many countries, including the United States.  It is the customer's responsibility to research their local, state, and federal laws and abide by those laws. Brewmaster is not responsible for any damage or injury caused by either misuse or unlawful use. Stills can also be used to produce essential oils, vinegar, purified water and engine fuel (requires permit in USA).

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 you brew malt extract beers in this? Or is this just for all grain homebrew. Thanks again
Bryce Thatcher on Jul 28, 2021
BEST ANSWER: Yes, totally. It is pretty optimal for extract brewing small batches. You need to keep a close eye on the boil though to keep it from foaming over due to the geometry (tall and narrow). The other limitation is transfer of wort. You'll want a solid stand to place it on to drain by gravity into your fermenter, or a pump. The nice thing is that with the thread on the spigot, a pump can be readily added on. It doesn't quite drain the bucket all the way since it's a sidewall mount, so be prepared to tilt at the end or pour the last few dregs out manually, or sacrifice to the gods the beer or two left behind. It is pretty much the perfect volume remaining for sterilizing for use as yeast starter on the next batch. The unit is kinda small for all grain, though I'm sure it is done either with an add on malt pipe or biab. Pretty much perfect for extract though.
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
Just purchased one and am waiting for it to come in. Have been making the 5-gallon extract batches in a pot on the stove using partial water. Question: If I add all the water up front, does the full boil remove all the oxygen and the fermentation is affected? Does anyone have experiences where I can just do the boil, cool down the wort, and pitch the yeast? Thanks.
Bob Prislipsky on Aug 21, 2021
BEST ANSWER: I brewed this way for years.
I now use a diffusion stone to oxygenate the wort after pitching yeast. You want to create a healthy environment in which the yeast will thrive.
It’ll certainly work the way you describe it just works better if you oxygenate somehow
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.

Awesome product and saves me a ton of time making candles!
The Digiboil is becoming so popular among candle business makers and owners. I have my own candle business and hand pour all of my soy candles. My business is growing and the need to make at least 200 candles per show is increasing. I heard about the Digiboil and ordered it. It arrived so quickly and in perfect condition. It was packaged extremely well with everything inside. My husband used some pipe threading tape on the valve to ensure it would be free of any leaks. I am able to put my entire box of soy wax flakes in here (about 45 lbs). I made 38 two wick tin candles in one day! It used to take me a week of evenings after work to make that quantity before! Love it so much that I posted to a Candlemaker's group on Facebook and spread the word. So many went on and ordered after my post with these photos that More Beer sold out! I love this company too! Thank you so much More Beer!
What a time savings!
All of these plus all the ones in the other photo were made in one day!
Love my Digiboil! Excellent for candlemakers!

I am ordering 2 more after having so much success using it to melt my wax for my candle brand. It displays an error because its not designed for wax but it switches back to the normal screen and will continue to heat to the desired temperature and melt the wax! Great product and great price
