Description 

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. It is single wall, and you can purchase the Robobrew Insulated Jacket if you want to increase heat insulation, although it will boil fine without the jacket.

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.

The Digiboil does not come with a printed manual, but it is very simple. One of the first things you will notice is that it is set in Centigrade. To switch to Fahrenheit, with the unit on and both element switches off, press the plus and minus keys simultaneously for 5 seconds to switch it to Fahrenheit display mode. To set the temperature, turn it on with water in the boiler, and press either the plus or minus key until the set point starts moving, and release when your desired temperature set point has been reached.

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.

Does this have a delayed start option like the robobrew? So I could set it up with water to get going before I get up for a brew day?
No, it is just a simple on and off control with digital readout.

Is it possible to add a false bottom so it can be used as a mash tun?
We do not recommend this, as you may get thermal protection errors.

This can be used with the Mash & Boil to heat up the sparge water?
Yes, it would work very well doing this.
