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 220V plug. One element is 1900w and the other is 500w for a combined 2400 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).

If you have access to 220V power, this is definitely the unit we recommend. Although 110V power is enough to get up to boil, 220V will get you there faster and provide a much more vigorous boil.

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
  • 220V /15A power
  • NEMA 6-30R plug (5 ft. cord)
  • Dual heating element control (1900w 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).

Can you post a picture of the 220v plug so those thinking about buying this can have the proper outlet installed?
Weston Slate on Feb 28, 2019
Do you plan to make a 4 wire version of the 220v digiboil? Most newer homes have 4 wire 240 plugs and this unit is 3 wire which would require running a new circuit instead of using existing one ie.. The dryer plug
Larry J Moore on Jan 8, 2020
BEST ANSWER: You could also make an adapter plug with a male plug like your drier; a piece of 10 gauge SO cable; and a female plug for you digiboil.
Just make sure you use the two black (or black and red) wires and the green wire (to ground) the white is the common and isn't used on the digiboil.
What are the dimensions on this kettle?
Weston Slate on Feb 28, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hello Weston - Approximately 14" x 25".

Exactly what I needed!
I brewed my first electric batch today. I have the 220v version since my garage is already wired for it. It took 25 mins to get to strike temp. The thermostat automatically shuts off when it hits the set temp, but there's no alarm or alert. Next time I'll set my phone timer and go make some coffee. I BIAB and didn't use a false bottom, I just shut off the elements before putting the bag/grains in. Held mash temp fine with only a couple of degree loss in an hour (I made a jacket for the kettle). I just mash out by adding 2 gals boiling water form the stove to thin the mash and bring the temp up. Just don't turn the elements back on until the bag is removed and drained . The 220v gets a good boil going in about 20 min and didn't even have a boil-over. I was actually able to shut off the smaller element and maintain a good boil on the 1900W element only. Nice and (oddly) quiet.

For me, the DigiBoil worked very well to replace my propane setup and simplify my brew day...weather no longer a factor with indoor brewing. Cleans up easy too. As others have said, it is a no-frills, economical option for an electric kettle. I do, however, feel like you need the 220v model to really be efficient time-wise.

Returned with expensive shipping
Would not bring 4 gallons of water to a boil in less than 4 hours. Granted it the ambient temp was in the 40s and the tap was at 62, but I had it wrapped with refletix insulation. I expected more, so maybe I expected too much but my advice is to invest in something insulated like the Mash & Boil.

Dont know if I love it or hate it
I bought both sizes of this system (17G and 9G), both 220V.
I have a couple other 5 gallon, 3 vessel A/G electric systems, but wanted to try these out for several reasons :
- Smaller footprint
- Easier cleanup
- The ability to do larger and smaller batches than 5 gallon

For full disclosure... I made a few mods to both system before I ever even plugged them in:
- I removed their drain valve, and installed a 1/2NPT SS valve with QD fitting outside and a whirlpool fitting inside.
- That QD fitting is used to connect the valve to a pump.
- I made a sparge ring that sits on the grain bed so I can recirculate the wort throughout the mash process to maintain an even temp throughout the grain bed.
- I bought the insulation wrap for it.

After using both for a handful of brew days, I've formed some opinions....

Pros:
- Price is unbelievable for what you get.
- Footprint is definitely smaller than 3 vessel systems.
- Operation is VERY simple
- Heat up times are very reasonable.
- Cleanup is a breeze
- You can boil smaller batches since there isn't an exposed heating element you have to keep submerged
- Having the ability to turn on/off the different sized heating elements lets you perfectly maintain as vigorous, or as mild, of a boil as you want.
- Changing mash temperature on the fly works great. Raising to 170 for mashout is quick and painless.

Cons:
- The mash basket ("grain tube" as people call it) sits sooo high off the bottom, that you have to put all your water in just to get enough water to mash. There's literally 2-4 gallons of water UNDER the mash basket. (depending on which size you have) This leaves no water left to sparge with. I'm sure this is whats killing efficiency.
- The large fluctuation in temp control is annoying. Its about a 5 degree swing. That's a pretty big envelope when it comes to mash temp. Seems easily fixed with a little program change??
- Our typical recipe is a 5 gallon batch of about 8% IPA. That grain bill is too much for the small unit..... and it's not enough for the large unit because of the 4 gallons of wasted water under the mash basket.

Overall... it's well built, VERY affordable, and will make beer. We will keep playing around with it. Maybe even find a way to lower the mash basket so we can sparge and see if that helps with efficiency. If we can't get the efficiency up, I'll probably go back to using one of the 3 vessel systems. Or maybe just use these for our HLT and BK, and use our old tried and true mash tuns.

Since I bought this my brew days have been easier and cleaner.
What can I say besides it is very simple and works perfect for me brewing extract kits. I built a 22" stand for it to sit on so I could slide a 6 gallon carboy under it and open the valve to dump it in. I had to buy a silicone oring and stainless steel nut for the ball valve which was no biggie. I am waiting for a false bottom to try BIAB, but they seem to be out of stock alot. The great part is i can brew indoors without the need for an exhaust vent.

Super Pleased
Tested the temperature of the unit twice, both times it was spot on. Ran my first batch with it (heating the strike water and the sparge water) and hit my mash temperature perfectly. Super glad I got this kettle, it really makes the first part of the all grain brew much easier.

Simple design, simple to use, pretty accurate temperature monitor. I DID mash in BIAB . Does insulate thermo probe a little but I just stuck a long thermometer thru the lid. I do recommend the jacket, it does a good job??.
Nice for the price??

Very powerful boil kettle and easy to use, but you need a specialized 240v receptacle to power it.

Great Boil Kettle
I bought this for a boil kettle to go electric at a great price point. It works great. Brought 8 gallons of wort to a strong rolling boil just as fast as my propane burner (just much more quiet). You will need a 30amp 250volt 6-30R outlet to plug into. The cord is only 5 ft long, so if you want to run this away from your outlet you will need an extension cord (can be found on Amazon). I am very pleased.
