Ready to upgrade your DigiBoil into a DigiMash? With the DigiMash upgrade kit you can convert the DigiBoil into a full blown electric all-in-one system. Includes false bottom, malt pipe with bottom screen, wire support, and malt pipe handle. Simply place the false bottom inside the kettle and install the malt pipe, fill with water and heat to your desired strike temperature, then add your grain and set your desired mash temperature on the digital controller. Once your mash is complete, lift up the malt pipe, drain the wort and sparge, then remove the malt pipe and proceed to boil.


  • False bottom
  • Malt pipe
  • Wire support 
  • Malt pipe handle
  • Malt pipe bottom screen

Installation & Use:

  • Place the false bottom inside the kettle
  • Install the wire support in the channel located at the top of the kettle
  • Place the mesh screen inside the malt pipe and attach the handle
  • Lower the malt pipe into the kettle so it rests on the wire support
  • Fill with strike water and heat to desired strike temperature
  • When desired temperature is reached, add grain and stir until well mixed
  • When your mash is complete, use the handle to lift out malt pipe and rotate 90° so the malt pipe feet sit on the wire support
  • Allow the wort to drain into the kettle and sparge the grain with warm water (165-175°F)
  • When you're done collecting your wort, remove the malt pipe and proceed to boil


Please note: only the 500-watt element should be used to increase mash temperatures when the Malt Pipe is in place. Using the higher watt element(s) with the Malt Pipe inserted may cause scorching of the grain.

How high does the false bottom raise the Malt Pipe from the bottom of the kettle to clear the top of the spigot?
Vincent Chao on Jul 16, 2020
BEST ANSWER: The Digiboil itself comes with a false bottom thats already about 1 1/2" off the bottom.
The bottom of the Malt pipe hangs about 3 1/2" from the bottom (or about 2" above the existing false bottom)
This equates to about 1.75 gallons of water UNDER the malt pipe while mashing.
The malt pipe is about 1" smaller diameter as well.
Add up all the water not in contact with the grains, and you pretty much have to mash at full volume to keep the grains under water. (can't sparge much since you're mashing at almost full volume)
This results in a pretty low efficiency in my experience.
I still like to use it sometimes because of its simplicity and ease of cleaning/use.... just don't expect to make any high gravity beers with it.
Just got this, no instructions where does the eye hook go?
Ken Hall on Mar 6, 2021
BEST ANSWER: The only thing I've ever used it for is to help remove the false bottom. I see no other function for it. I actually quit using the false bottom too. Unless you're using a bag instead of the malt pipe, or tossing whole leaf hops into the boil It doesn't serve any useful function .
I'm considering getting this and using a pump to recirculate. Does this have an overflow similar to the robobrew?
Jonah DeWaters on Oct 2, 2019
BEST ANSWER: No the malt pipe doesn't have the overflow pipe.
Will this fit / work with the grainfather?
Joseph Tulauan on Oct 1, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes it will

Needs redesign
I was thinking this would be a good thing but after first use I think I will have to put a brew bag inside next time. They should have maybe welded screen all the way around instead of having it loose. A lot of grains got through the bottom. Big Mess

Excellent quality
This is a great addition to my Digiboil kettle, I just wish I had noticed the bundle instead of purchasing individually. Could have saved $8 bucks

DigiMash Upgrade Kit for 35L DigiBoil
Did exactly what I wanted it to do. Mash & sparge with ease. Grain column comes apart for easy cleaning. While at first the handle seemed a little insecure, in actual use it was very stable when lifting the column out of the wort. Easily removeable too.

Cleaner wort, lower efficiency
Finally upgraded after using the BIAB method for a few years with the digiboil. It now functions as a low-cost all-in-one system. The mash upgrade kit made a HUGE improvement in the clarity of post-boil wort, but my efficiency dropped at 10 points from squeezing the bag (it still sits at a respectable 70-75%). Perhaps it will improve with more use.

With the release of the Gen 4 brewzilla, (and rising costs due to inflation), I’d probably spring for the gen 3 brewzilla if starting from scratch in the all-in-one electric brew system.

Highly Recommend
This is an awesome setup for homebrew. Definitely worth the bargain of skipping out on an individual mash tun. I’ve had several brewing partners (always brew with a friend) whom have worked for big time breweries and they’ve given multiple praises with this setup.

Fantastic upgrade
This product has been on back order all over the place. MooreBeer was the first to have it back in stock at a great price. I'll be putting it to use on my next days off.

Good idea but... Bring a grain bag
Seemed like my prayers were answered when they added this kit in to turn that wonderful digiboil kettle into a all in one system. Parts seemed fine but I'm thinking the tolerances are off on mine: There's enough gap from the malt pipe bottom screen that I ended up having way too many grains floating around in my wort. Thinking I might have the local store check mine out to see if it might be defective, if not I'm going to definitely add a grain bag into the malt pipe next time, it's worth it alone to be able to hoist up your grain bag and let it drain, but I think 5 gallon BIAB recipes push the limits of this setup.

Great Addition
I've been using the Digiboil kettle as part of a 2 vessel MIAB (Mash in a Bag) system since last March with great results. When you offered this upgrade I didn't hesitate to order it.

I'm absolutely amazed at how well it holds mash temperature. I mashed at 152F for my last batch and the element only came on once to increase the temperature in 75 minutes. My efficiency was great too.

No bells and whistles, but this is a solid all in one system.
