BoilCoil™

The Blichmann Engineering™ BoilCoil™ redefines electric heating!  Unrivaled performance, speed, and simplicity.  Simply plug in a BoilCoil™ immersion heater to an Electric-Tower of Power™ control module for immediate, high efficiency heat.  Ideal for indoor brewing and a perfect companion for your BoilerMaker™G2.  The New BoilerMaker™G2 kettles can be ordered with the holes pre-punched at the factory, or you can easily install yourself by drilling two small 5/8" holes with our handy drill template.  The BoilCoil™ will also fit most competitor's kettles and even kegs! We include a 12ft factory wired cable with our custom plug on one end for the BoilCoil™ and a molded twist-lock plug on the other end ready to be plugged into your controller.  Hot, fast, and easy.  Just the way you like it.

 

 

Features

This new Blichmann Engineering™ innovation redefines electric heating!  Unrivaled performance, speed, and simplicity.  Just plug in a BoilCoil™ immersion heater for immediate, high efficiency heat.  Ideal for indoor brewing and a perfect companion for your BoilerMaker™G2 brew kettle. 

 

  • Each BoilCoil™ is engineered to perform optimally in your BoilerMaker™G2 brew kettle for consistent heating performance, boil quality, and boil-off rates
  • Removable custom engineered plug means cleaning is a snap - no dangling power cord tethered to your kettle! 
  • Coil configuration hugs the wall of the kettle to encourage convective boil characteristics to drive off DMS and other volatiles and does not interfere with whirlpooling
  • The 240V BoilCoil™ includes a "plug and play" 12 ft factory wired cable with a molded twist-lock L6-30P plug on one end, and our custom removable plug on the other end
  • Less than Ultra low watt density means NO chance of scorching when used as directed
  • Simple installation, requiring only two small 5/8" holes . We will provide the mounting holes in your new BoilerMaker™G2 kettle at the factory or you can install yourself!
  • Features a professional and reliable connection and sealing system engineered specifically for brewing kettles
  • Compatible with the HopBlocker™ kettle filter
  • The BoilCoil™ will fit in most competitor kettles and even kegs!  See data tab for dimensional drawing and installation template
  • The BoilCoil™ requires the use of a power control device capable of de-energizing the heater coil to safely operate.
  • Couple with our new electric TOWER of POWER™ controller for the ultimate in temperature control.  Visit our TOWER of POWER™ page for more detail!
  • Note - the BoilCoil™ is suitable for heating strike water in your mash tun but is NOT suitable for step mashing.  The grain impedes convective flow of the wort and scorching will result.  However, our RIMS-Rocket™ is a great choice for step mashing since the grain is never in direct contact with the heating coil.

All BoilCoil™ and RIMS-Rocket™ Electric Heaters are rated at or below 30 Watts/in2, less than Ultra-Low-Watt-Density!

 

To calculate the rate at which the BoilCoil™ will heat your wort, use the handy equation below:

Ramp Rate in °F/minute = 0.0068 X Watts / gallons

BoilCoil™ Electric Heaters are available at all fine Blichmann Engineering™ Retailers

*The 55 gallon BoilerMaker™ requires two 55 gallon BoilCoil™ elements. A controller for multiple heaters will be available in the near future.

 

               Volumetric Displacement of the BoilCoil

For reference the water volume increases by 4% as temperature goes from 70°F to 212°F.
