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 10-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 three built-in heating elements that run off a 220V plug. The elements are 2000w, 1000w and 500w for a combined 3500 watts! The elements can be individually controlled, allowing you to use a single element to gently hold temperatures, or engage all three 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
  • 17 gallon total capacity
  • Digital temperature control
  • 220V / 20A power
  • NEMA 6-30R plug (4.5 ft. cord)

  • 304 stainless steel 1/2" ball valve with 13mm barb (approx. 1/2")
  • Stamped-in volume markers (gallons & liters)
  • Glass lid
  • Temperature reads in °F or °C
    • With elements turned off, hold both the +/- buttons to switch between °F or °C

When will this be back in stock?

BEST ANSWER: Hi Steven - It is estimated to be back in stock and ready to ship in early June.
20amp or 30 amp? The spec's say 20A but the plug implies 30A...
Mark Jacobs on Feb 24, 2020
BEST ANSWER: 3500 watts at 220v is 15.9 amps. Depending on your exact voltage at the unit, you could be drawing between 14.5 and 17.5 amps. A 20 amp circuit would have an adequate safety factor.

You will need a recepticle with a 6-30R female socket unless you plan on changing the plug on the cord. But you are supposed to have 30 amps to a 30amp recepticle.

I ended up buying a leviton 5376 surface mount recepticle and a generic NEMA 10-30P plug and used some 3 conductor 10 gauge wire to make myself a 20 foot extension cord that would allow me to use the digiboil in my kitchen with power comming from my dryer recepticle as long as the dryer was not in use.
In the picture it shows the volume markers only go to 15 gallons? Its listed as 17.1Gallons. Can this actually do a 15 gallon batch with enough head space to allow for the hot break?
Joshua Turner on Jul 6, 2020
BEST ANSWER: In that the unit isn’t powerful enough to seriously boil. It has been my experience that. 15 gallons of wort would not boil over. To be sure you could max out the boil at 14gal and top off with sanitized water to hit your target volume at KO. I know a brewer that boils several gallons of water days in advance and pours them hot into gallon jugs. He seals them well And takes them down to room temp. The night before the brew he puts them in the fridge. Then he has cold top off water to help drop temp and improve break.
Hello. Would it be possible to connect a bazooka screen to the existing ball valve?

A Good Deal/nice product
I use this for my HLT, it heats to mash in temps in not more time than my propane system. T he big advantage is it's easy to maintain mash water temps. I do a lot of two stage mash temps. I know with "modern" malts you don't have to but I find enjoy the flavor more the malt flavors are smoother.

It's not as heavy duty a my keggles. I wish it had a sight gauge on the side, but I can take care of that easily.

Nice product overall easy to use.

Slower than propane but it can be left unattended inside ( it's real value)
Its a 17 gallon uninsulated kettle with very simple electronics. I had hoped for delayed start but it does not have this, but it can get 10 gallons of RO water from tap to boil in 90 min. I only use it for boiling. It holds my immersion chiller and I can still get a whirlpool going. With three elements I was concerned with scorching which has not been problem. It's pretty tall so cleaning requires long arms. So far, so good.

Finally a 220v kettle for under $300.
I'm more than pleased with this unit. Besides the need to change the plug to a 30 amp dryer from home depot for $14, a very simple modification (3 wires, green, hot, neutral). I timed the unit and here are the numbers: 10 gallons of water at 54F to 160F took only 41min and from 130F to 208F it took 32min at 3500 watts setting. Now if I compare this with my Afterburner from Blichman using natural gas it's only 10 minutes slower but the benefit is that I can brew a 5 gallons recipe for only 7 kilowatts at 0.27 kilowatts that's only $1.62. Not to mention the convenience of not having a big flame burner that you need to physically be watching all the time due to the fear of setting your house on fire; safety is priceless.
