Details

This fully portable electric brew kettle uses a standard 120 GFCI volt outlet, enabling you to brew anywhere, anytime. A fully integrated digital control ensures that steeping grains are always kept at the perfect temperature. Then simply adjust the set temperature to achieve a boil.

Gigawort’s 4.4 gallon capacity is ideal for both small batches and also partial-volume boils for 5 gallon batches. Full stainless steel construction is easy to clean and ensure durability.

The Gigawort™ utilizes our revolutionary patent-pending Iso-flow bulkhead and dip tube, which makes for trouble-free wort transferring, eliminating the need to lift and pour the wort into your fermentor. Ditch the stove and create your own custom brew cave anywhere you have an outlet.

To begin with, right out of the box it is beautiful - a very nice finish and I am proud to have it out for all to see. It has made my brewing life so much easier. The first time I used it I cooked two batches in one day! I have never done that before. It's perfect for me, as my brewery is in my basement. It's not faster, but it is a lot easier.

Unit Has Flaws
There are two key flaws with this unit.
It hits its target temp and then (slowly) exceeds it and then corrects below the target temp. It see saws. Not super fast but it has a little trouble sticking to a single degree.
Secondly, the valve design is highly flawed. While tightening the outside nut, the ball valve loosens, and then when tightening the ball valve, the outside nut loosens. I think the collar is part of the problem. By removing the collar, the outside nut can be tightened and then using a grip wrench, the ball valve can be tightened down.

Excellent purchase
This is a great little kettle and brings wort to a rolling boil. It's also very light and easily portable.

Works well with one exception
I bought this so I can brew in my basement in the winter. It looks great and comes to a boil pretty quick. Easy to use and clean. My only complaint (and I've heard this from other reviews) is that when you reduce temp to add your malt, it goes into an error code every time. You have to drag out this kettle of hot liquid and hit the reset button which is in the middle of the bottom. Not the best situation. So far I haven't burned myself bit you need to be VERY careful. If the Mfg has a comment on why this happens I would be glad to hear it. That's the only downside so far. Great construction and the black mirror finish makes it look great in my brewroom

Response from Midwest Supplies
The main thing to remember is not to turn down the heat but to turn it off completely. What happens otherwise is the thick heavy malt syrup sinks to the bottom and quickly burns to the bottom from the heating element. Turning the heat off first then adding the syrup and mixing helps to make sure this does not happen. Cheers!

Gigawort Brew Kettle
Great right out of the box...No problems...but have only made one batch so far...If I had to "Nitpick"..."I"... would state in the instructions...that when you reach the boil temp...flip the temp switch from 1600W to 600W...The boil lag time is shorter and the boil less aggressive at the 600W setting...Great time saver and easy to clean!

Makes brewing easy
Since my recent purchase of the Gigawort I have brewed a Hanks Hefeweizen, a Fresh Squished IPA and a Snow Plow Porter. Following the directions resulted in all three brewing without a problem. They all turned out excellent. Very convenient and easy to use. The electronic temperature control is my favorite feature. I don't have to worry about constantly adjusting the gas like with the stove or a propane burner. I'm sure it's ease of use will result in me brewing more often.

Brewing is now a LOT easier!
I bought this earlier this year, and I have to say it makes the job a lot easier! I was a little thrown off by setting the timer, the trick is not to press 'set' after you've set the number of seconds, just let it go and it will start on its own (better docs on this would help). I really like the dip tube feature. I get a continuous flow out of the kettle and into my wort chiller until the kettle is practically empty. This is something I always wrestled with when using my homemade kettle& spigot. Thanks for a great product!

Could you perform a mash in this and set your temps?
A shopper on Dec 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No, it's only 4.4 gallons so unless you're doing a micro batch it's not going to be big enough to mash in.
Will they ever come out with a bigger unit then this one, like an 8 ro 10 gallon unit???
Andrew G on Mar 27, 2018
I was on the verge of ordering one but the reviews made me hesitate. Still, shutting off the heater when adding extract doesn’t seem unreasonable. You move a kettle off the burner when you add extracts anyway. One concern I do have though is boilovers when adding hops. On my stove I can move my kettle off the burner when that becomes an issue. Does this unit have a fast enough response time if that happens? Or is residual heat still going to be a problem?
A shopper on Mar 10, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Thanks for contacting Midwest Supplies. I understand you have some questions on the temperature for the Gigawort. There will be some learning curves with any use of product. However, the temperature fix is easy, you just have to set the temperature much higher. When you want your wort to boil you need to set your thermostat in the Gigawort to 218 degrees Fahrenheit which will over-ride it turning off once it gets close to a boil. When we say "rolling" boil during a boil, we really mean we want to see some movement in the water, but you don't have to boil it hard. This will help prevent boil overs. Also only putting half of the recommended water in the total capacity of the vessel will help prevent them by giving room to catch it in time. If you do have some foaming when adding the hops, I keep a spray bottle of water and just spray the foam. It will help it dissipate. The Gigawort is well insulated, so it will take a little longer for response from the wort, so being cautious is always a good thing. Cheers!
What material is the lid made of and does it seal well?
A shopper on Apr 7, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The lid is a lighter weight steel or aluminum, not all heavy weight as the covers for my cooking pans, for example. I just got mine last week and only boiled water to test the function and leak test it. The cover did not seem to release steam, it is molded to fit snuggly inside the Rim of the kettle, but I would not say it seals 100%. I have read some articles that say you should boil with the cover off, so tannins and astringents can escape. I would definitely leave the cover on to speed up reaching temperature, then removing or at least “cracking” the cover to vent some steam. Most recipes account for water loss from boiling so I think the idea is to let steam escape. First batch scheduled for later this week! Hope this helps!
Is there a wort chiller for the kettle? If not what’s the recommendation for hilling the wort?
Sladky J on Mar 26, 2019
BEST ANSWER: No. This isn't an all in one unit. It's just basically a big coffee pot that heats your water to a set temperature. It's recommended for extract brewing but I use it for making 2.5 gal batches from all grain and works great for maintaining my mash temporatures. I just cut a 5 gal recipe in 1/2. I just drop my wart chiller in during the last 5 minutes of the boil as I do with my old kettle. It's a tight fit but works. Good luck.
I'm considering using this to do 1gallon experimental batches (AG) as well as some souring techniques. Will this hold temp for days at a time or only for a short period?
A shopper on Oct 31, 2018
BEST ANSWER: There is a timer that holds the temperature for a set amount of time. It defaults to 3.5 hours when turned on. I’m not sure what the maximum time setting is because my longest boil has been 60 minutes. I haven’t tried going longer than 3.5 hours only shorter
How many amps?
Wayland K on Mar 15, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Well let’s see, since Volts*Amps=Watts then Amps=Watts/Volts. It runs on 120V and it says 1600W for heating and 600W to maintain boil so by doing some simple math 1600W/120V=13.3A and 600W/120V=5A.
What is the inside diameter and height of the kettle portion?
A shopper on Dec 29, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The inside dimensions are 9.75" w x 13.5" h. One thing of note is this is all one piece. The kettle does not separate from the heating element.
Can the Gigawort be wired for 220V?
A shopper on May 23, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hi there- it cannot be wired for 220V. Cheers!
Is there a mash basket in the works for this? Or one already available that will fit?
A shopper on Mar 27, 2018
BEST ANSWER: We do not have a mash basket for the Gigawort. You could however use a Brew In A Bag approach to get the same final result.
Any stock update for March 2018? Thanks!
A shopper on Mar 8, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The Gigawort is currently in stock. Cheers!
