Product Details

Never be caught off-guard ever again. Enter the Sentinel™ Boilover Minder: your stainless-steel line of defense against the most dangerous of brew day surprises.

Engineered to prevent boilovers, the strategically placed holes disrupt the foam by creating smaller columns that collapse under their own weight. No matter how high the foam tries to rise, your Sentinel™ keeps a watchful eye, knocking the foam back again and again, so you have more time to react to prevent boilovers before they can even begin.

It can happen in an instant. You look a way for just one moment and suddenly your brew kettle erupts in a mushroom-cloud of scalding, sticky foam; a hazard to skin, steel, burners, and floors alike.

Never be caught off-guard ever again. Enter the Sentinel™ Boilover Minder: your stainless-steel line of defense against the most dangerous of brew day surprises. Whether you brew in the light of day or darkest night, the Sentinel™ will be there to keep your boil steady and your mind at peace.

Engineered to prevent boilovers, the strategically placed holes disrupt the foam by creating smaller columns that collapse under their own weight. No matter how high the foam tries to rise, your Sentinel™ keeps a watchful eye, knocking the foam back again and again, so you have more time to react to prevent boilovers before they can even begin.

But don't worry about those early bittering hop additions. The Sentinel™ knows friend from foe with a large central hole that allows for easy hop additions. It will never have to leave it's post.

The Sentinel™ is designed specifically for the 8, 10, and 15 gallon MegaPot 1.2 brew kettles. Simply line up your Sentinel™ so that it forms a seal with the edge of the kettle, and it’s boiling time.

useful tool

I purchased this to work with my grainfather. It will boil over if I leave the lid, but will not boil well without some sort of lid to keep heat in. This device works well for this. It's much larger than I had planned which is why I didn't give it 5 stars. I didn't see an option for a smaller one. I guess if you had a much wider pot it would work very well.

It slowed down the boil-over but did not stop it, and this while I was watching it. It would definitely not be a leave alone and forget type device. This was with a 5 gallon batch in an 8 gallon pot.

If you brew indoors, buy one

This thing is great. Really helps prevent a boil over.
Not sure if there are other tricks that might work like using an all metal strainer but this thing is well build and a reasonable price. Would be great if something like this was included in starter kits. I'm sure a lot of people ended their first brew session having to completely scour there stove.

Side note, if you do use this during your first brew don't get cocky. This thing helps you find the hot break and gives you more time to react. It does not completely prevent a boil over. What the pot with your hand on the knob until you are 100% sure your boil has stabilized. ... then keep watching for a few more minutes.
