The KegLand Digiboil is an 8 gallon electric boiling pot with precise digital control. Made of 304 stainless steel, it features 1500 watts of total power, selectable with both a 1000 watt and 500 watt switch. Perfect for brewing, distilling, sous vide cooking, and more. Keep in mind that although it has an 8 gallon capacity, we recommend you boil no more than 6.5 gallons, to allow head space to prevent damaging boil overs. 

The digital display can be set to any temperature between 32° and 212° F, and hold that temperature to plus or minus 5 degrees. The valve features standard 1/2" threads, so you can fit female NPT 1/2" accessories such as cam lock fittings to the spigot for attaching chillers and other accessories. The rim features clamps, and standard Robobrew and Grainfather distilling lids will fit perfectly. 27" tall, 12" wide. Interior dimensions: 19" tall, 11¾" wide.

This unit draws a hefty 15 amps, and must be plugged into a dedicated GGCI outlet for safety. The unit should not be submersed in water.

When brewing with malt extract, you will need to get your water boiling, then shut off the heat momentarily while you stir the extract in to dissolve. This eliminates the extract from burning on the bottom, and prevents the thermostat protective circuit from throwing an error. As soon as the extract is dissolved, turn back on the heat and brew.

Note: The Digiboil is primarily designed for boiling, distilling, and heating sparge water. It is not designed for Brew In Bag or mashing directly in the unit. If you suspend a large grain bag in the unit or add mash directly to the unit, it will throw a thermal protection error, because the grain or the grain bag will cover the thermostat, which will then shut off the heating element.

Digiboil

Review by Sam U on 2/14/2019

Well worth the money. I have been wanting to go electric for some time but didn't want to spend what the other companies were wanting. I wrapped my unit with 3 layers of reflectix and once was to strike twmp, turned off and proceeded with biab. I had no problem getting to a full boil. Brew day was so much nicer not having to drag as much out. Now, I can use the money I saved to buy a whirlpool and pump.

Update

Review by Bob B. on 5/6/2019

After using the Digiboil for several batches I decided to use it as my primary system. I do 5.25 gallon, full volume mash, MIAB (mash in a bag) batches with excellent results. Here's a link to a post with a description and picture of the setup. https://www.brewersfriend.com/forum/threads/emiab-2-vessel-system.11338/ I used the same MKII pump and plumbing that were previously used with my 14 gallon boil kettle.

Homebrew review

Review by D H on 2/6/2020

First brew went well. Brewed 6gal and only had 0.5gal loss in 60 min boil. Was 40 in brew shed. Didn't get up to rolling boil until I covered top 7/8 with the lid. Decided to order distilling lid to help with boil but will uncover for last 10-15 min to allow DMS to boil off

Worth every penny

I love the Kegland Digiboil. It worked perfect.

Review by Anthony Donner on 5/31/2020

I have only used the Digiboil once so far, and bought it for brewing in my shop to avoid heating up the house with the gas stove during the summer months. Over it's a great product, and seems to be of better quality than other brands that are around the same price. It reaches temperature for mashing and boiling quickly, but the temperature gauge is a bit off at boiling point for water (206 degrees F versus 212) but is accurate at mashing temperature and agrees with my floating thermometer. Using the ball valve for draining the wort is a little slower than I like, but ok otherwise.

Q: For distilling will the temperature controls work like a voltage controller?

A: Not quite sure what you mean here, but with the temperature controls, you can set any desired temperature. This is handy in distilling as you can set it to say 205 F instead of boiling, for a more gentle boil to separate the alcohol from the water.

Q: So from a previous person, there is mesh basket for the grains - can you use a bag for the grains? What is the recommended method for grain separation? Thanks!

A: The Digiboil will probably throw an error code if you put a Brew In Bag inside it. This will restrict too much thermal flow in the boiler and trap excess heat next to the heating element which will trigger the error code.

Q: Will the immersion chillers for the robobrew fit? If so does this change the recommended total volume from 6.5 gallons?

A: Yes, the Robobrew immersion chiller will work with the Digiboil. While the fluid level will rise a small amount when inserting the chiller, it won't prevent you from using the Digiboil at the recommended total volume of 6.5 gallons.

Q: when it reaches boiling temp (212) for water will it be a rolling/bubbling boil?

A: It will reach a gentle rolling boil, although not quite as vigorous as if you were using a propane burner.

Q: Do we need to add a grommet to lid to take 3 piece airlock for fermenting in that vessel?

A: The standard lid included does not have a hole for an airlock. To get a sealed lid for fermenting, order optional lid B80, and then get a #10 stopper R61, and finally an airlock E01.
