Description

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.

Includes:

  • 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.
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

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.

Love it.
So far I’ve used the mash pipe twice. I’m a big fan. The step mashing was easy. No scorching occurred. Super easy to clean. Eliminated the need for a separate mash tun, which saves space and reduces my wife’s complaining about my hobby.
