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. 

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.

Update
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.

I used the same MKII pump and plumbing that were previously used with my 14 gallon boil kettle.

Digiboil
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.

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

when it reaches boiling temp (212) for water will it be a rolling/bubbling boil?
It will reach a gentle rolling boil, although not quite as vigorous as if you were using a propane burner.

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

Will you carry the 65L version? On that model, Is there one unit that adapts to 120/240v or would I order one or the other?
We don't plan on carrying that model at this time. The current model is only available in 120v.
