Hands on Review: Brewer’s Edge Mash & Boil Electric Brewery – new updates

This review is by Homebrew Finds Contributor Brad Probert.  Brad is an engineer, expert homebrewer and experienced reviewer.  Grab a link to Brad’s website at the end of this review.

Brewer’s Edge Mash & Boil

I reviewed a number of electric all-in-one brewing systems a little over a year ago. As a collective group, these systems offer a lot to the homebrewer. They provide the flexibility and control of brewing process of all-grain, and the equipment simplicity of brew-in-a-bag. The fact that they’re electric gives you the ability to brew inside and convenience of not having to chase propane tank fill-ups. The electric systems also have the ability to set a target temperature and control to it, giving you better control of your brew day. All of these combine to create a more streamlined and less stressful brew day.

Each system has its own strengths and they all span a wide price range. The units I tried last year ranged from $470 at the low end to $2,500 at the high end. When I saw the Brewer’s Edge Mash & Boil coming in at $300, I was intrigued to see how this unit would work and if you really could go all-grain with an electric system at such an affordable price point.

Announcing: The DigiMash All-Grain Electric Brewing System

DigiMash All-Grain Electric Brewing System - 35L/9.25G (110V)

DigiMash All-Grain Electric Brewing System – 35L/9.25G (110V) via MoreBeer

More Info

From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

The DigiMash system represents the best value in electric all-grain brewing you’ll find. With a 9 gallon Digiboil electric kettle and the Digimash stainless steel mashing acessory pack included, this is by far the most affordable way to get into electric all-grain brewing. It may not have all the bells and whistles of the BrewZilla, but it does have everything you need to mash and boil all in one unit. Setting up and using the DigiMash couldn’t be easier. 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.

If you’re deciding between the DigiMash and the BrewZilla, there are a couple of key differences worth noting. One of our favorite features of the BrewZilla is the programmable mash steps and delayed start, which the DigiMash does not have. You can still step mash by simply raising the temperature manually on the controller, but the automatic steps are a convenient feature if you want to set it and forget it.

The other major difference between the two systems is that the BrewZilla features a built-in pump for recirculating the mash. Recirculation is a great way to improve mash efficiency, but it is far from required for a successful brew day. Using an external pump with the DigiMash is also an option, and one can be integrated for mash recirculation quite easily. Simply connect the ball valve to the inlet of your pump, and then connect the outlet of the pump to our Sparge Arm Assembly.

This model comes with the 35L DigiBoil, which has two built-in heating elements that run off a 110V plug. One element is 1000w and the other is 500w for a combined 1500 watts! The elements can be individually controlled, allowing you to use a single element to gently hold temperatures, or engage both elements to quickly go from mash 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 fittings with 1/2″ FPT, such as our female threaded quick disconnect.

DigiBoil Features:

  • 304 stainless steel construction
  • 9 gallon total capacity
  • Digital temperature control
  • 110V / 15A power and plug (5 ft. cord)
  • Dual heating element control (1000w and 500w)
  • Heating elements are concealed for easy cleaning
  • 304 stainless steel 1/2″ ball valve with 13mm barb (approx. 1/2″)
  • Stamped-in volume markers (gallons & liters)
  • Stainless lid
  • Temperature reads in °F or °C
  • With elements turned off, hold both +/- buttons to switch between °F or °C
  • Recommended max. grain bill – 18 lbs
  • Recommended min. grain bill – 8 lbs
  • External Dimensions: 29″ H x 15″ W (including handles)
  • Internal Dimensions: 19.5″ H x 11.75″ W

DigiMash Stainless Steel Accessory Pack 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 temperature
  • Add grain, stir until well mixed, and adjust controller to target mash temperature
  • 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 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.
