    Don't buy this!
    Review by Rodon 15/01/2017
    Arrived with a large crack extending out from the tap. Very obviously cracked, so clearly no quality control by the supplier. Generally, the plastic does not seem robust enough. Don't waste time buying this.

    Good boiler but keep it clean
    Review by Matthewon 06/11/2016
    I bought mine about a year ago aware of the comments from other people about it cutting out. After about 10 faultless brews mine also cut out mid boil. I think its because I was only boiling about 10l, so there wasn't much of a head of water above the element, so it produced more bubbles than normal. This allowed it to caramelise the wort onto the element more than normal leading to it overheating.
    I swapped to my old boiler and saved the brew. Afterwards I cleaned the element with half a cup of Wickes patio cleaner and a kettle full of boiling water. This is an acid, and very similar to Killrok. I use it at home to descale the kettle, toilets etc, since its far cheaper than kettle descaler! The heat softens the burned on caramel and the acid helps the cleaning process. After a fair bit of scrubbing and picking off the black, I got the element back sparkling clean and the next brew was fine.
    So in summary, keep it clean, and don't try to boil small quantities.

    Buy a stainless steel Boiler.
    Review by Michaelon 22/09/2016
    I bought one of these a while back and have been bitterly disappointed. After several brews failing I found that having thought I had introduced rogue yeasts ruining several brews, I checked the flavour of water after boiling and found the strong flavour of plastic. I have tried boiling with Bi carb and separately with vinegar several times the water is still contaminated. In no way does this reflect on Brew UK, but I would in future only consider a stainless steel boiler. This item has been very disappointing. I do hanker for a Grainfather.

    Good quality, works well but not cheap
    Review by Billon 11/08/2016
    I have been using this boiler now for a couple of years. I use it purely for heating liquor and boil wort in a stainless steel kettle. The main aspect to beware of are the thermostat calibration - it's essential to use an external thermometer. The thermostat also has several degrees of hysteresis so setting final temperature is best done iteratively rising from below the required set point. But overall does the job quite well.

    Buyer beware - it need proper cleaning!
    Review by rickgxon 24/11/2015
    This is great boiler, does everything you'd expect and is pretty quick to heat up too. However, you MUST properly clean the element after each use, with cleaner and citric acid to remove any trace of coating one the element. If you don't do this, then the slightest trace of coating on the element can cause the thermostat to trip out, resulting in a stalled boil and the shedding of many frustrated brewers tears. Needs a thorough clean after EVERY use but otherwise a pretty good economical purchase.

    Great Product
    Review by Darrenon 21/09/2015
    I've been making small batch all grain in the kitchen for a while and bought this so I can brew in the garage. Finally finished my garage setup and completed my first brew yesterday. It done a great job and kept a great rolling boil!

    Good boil
    Review by Jeffon 24/07/2015
    I had problems with the first boiler maintaining a rolling boil, which Greg replaced with another. Thanks Greg. Have brewed 2 batches with the new boiler without problems. It maintains a good rolling boil for the whole session - what more could you want. As other have commented, I'll be paying attention to thorough cleaning after each brew.

    Good beginners boiler
    Review by Gordonon 26/05/2015
    It's a good boiler for conducting first full grain brews. Ignore the thermostat, there is zero sensitivity, just go by your own separate thermometer. It only really has two settings, on (maximum) and off. Everything else is irrelevant. During my first boil I turned it down to simmer and it went off, thankfully it turned back on again fairly quickly when I turned it back to max, but it still took several minutes for the temperature probe to turn the element back on. Not great mid boil.

    It's a bit of a pain to clean due to the element being under the screen, but easy enough, you'll need an old toothbrush to do it properly. Make sure you do clean it after every use or the element can trip to off, so I've been told.

    When transferring your post boil wort to fermenter don't be afraid to tip the boiler over at a real angle, otherwise you'll lose a lot of wort.

    Two boils in and so far it's been fine. The white plastic is already beginning to be stained by the hops oil, but it's easy enough to keep clean overall. The real test will be how long it lasts.

    Re-review of 17/01/16
    Review by Muddyon 10/02/2015
    Thanks to the guys at Brewuk for the great feed back and information.

    As a boiler it is superb, and getting water quicky to mash temparture its very effecient. Be aware though it is just for boiling and not holding a volume of water at a pre-selected temp.

    My brew did not spoil and in fact turned out really well.

    Therefore 5 stars to negate the original incorrect rating.

    Overall knowing whatbi know now this should be rated as 4

    Poor thermostatic control
    Review by Muddyon 17/01/2015
    Up to a nice rolling boil, then adjusting to a simmer the whole unit shut down for over 15 mins. It's not the sort of control I would expect from an expensive piece of kit. Not sure if my current brew will now be spoilt. Another moan is that when trying to bring water up to spare temperature 77c leaving the unit set at 80 it would constantly turn off. Basically I had to leave it at the boil setting to get the water to the required temp.

    RESPONSE FROM BREWUK - please email us and we'll speak to Brupaks. Full one rolling boil is the setting you should when boiling worts and we don't use any other settings on ours but we can check if yours okay.

    Need to try again to be sure
    Review by Wynnoon 22/04/2014
    Just got this boiler as part of the All Grain starter kit. The boiler seems well made, is a good size and brought my brew up to the boil reasonably quickly. I did struggle to get it to hold a rolling boil however, it would come to the boil, and then cut out for some time before eventually coming back on and then doing the same cycle again; this with the thermostat set to max. Having read the other reviews, I'm aware of the need to keep the element squeaky clean, however as this was my first boil this cannot be the issue. I note in the pictures that you can see the open well that holds the element, however mine has come with a cover plate that protects the element - this plate does seem to mean that water does not circulate around the element and perhaps is exacerbating the issue. For my next brew I'm going to try without the element cover plate in place and see if this sorts the issue. Will let you know!

    RESPONSE FROM BREWUK - sorry to hear about your issues. There should be no problem with rolling boil if you keep the element clean so please contact us if you have further problems and we'll get it fixed for you.

    A quality product
    Review by GZWon 01/11/2013
    Brupaks Boiler Review

    The first impression I got after unpacking the boiler was that it is a well-made, high quality product. (This figures, as it's made in Germany - usually a guarantee of quality.)
    Using it for its first brew, I heated the brewing liquor to mash temperature, setting the thermostat to 80 degrees, but, like another reviewer, found that it went well above this value - I'll try it at 60 next time. For the boil, it came up to temperature fairly quickly and maintained a fast rolling boil if the thermostat was kept at the "boil" position or slightly back from this, though I had to keep an eye on it to avoid it boiling over. Getting it to simmer was more tricky; turning the thermostat to "simmer" would cut the heat for some minutes before it started boiling again. A bit of trial and error was needed to get it right.
    Other users have commented on the tap outlet being straight rather than bent causing difficulty in pouring into the fermenting vessel; I had a piece of tubing ready in case this was a problem, but after cooling the wort and taking careful aim, I was able to transfer all of it without mishap. There is a small leak, however, at the nozzle joint which I was able to seal with a plastic washer from my "box of bits".
    Despite it being used to boil a very dark stout, the boiler came up sparkling white and the heating element shiny silver after cleaning.
    All in all, it's a very good piece of kit, which should last for years if looked after and cleaned properly, but keep an eye on the thermostat settings.

    Good - but keep it clean
    Review by JudeSunFloweron 29/05/2013
    You must keep the element clean. This cut out on my second use... I put it down to my inexperience. As a boiler it is great value. I may make some modifications to keep debris clear from the element which seems very sensitive. I imagine this is a challenge for any boiler so at the current price ... But well worth it.

    About to head into the world of AG brewing and this feels like the tool for the job.

    Does the job
    Review by Grahamon 22/04/2013
    After brewing with a stock pot and taking all day I invested in a boiler. It did the job exceedingly well and produced a clear wart. I did have a problem with a little overboil, but I will comensate for this next time. The 2kw heater does make it a bit slow to raise the temperature to boiling, but there are other things to do in the mean time.

    First Class Product - But needs a hose
    Review by tonystoxon 12/02/2013
    I am pleased with this boiler and successfully brewed about 4 gallons of your Appolo AG recipe, I bottled it on 22.12. 12. and it has a very pleasant complex and fruity taste with a smooth hoppy finish. Only beef is the well made Brupaks boiler needs a hose as I kept having to move it to direct the finished wort into the fermenting bin.

    Please Brew UK send me some hosing_ I will pay as necessary.

    Many thanks,

    Anthony Stockle

    RESPONSE FROM BREWUK - Thanks for the review Anthony. You don't need hose to transfer wort to the fermenter so long as you cool it first. It better to let the wort run straight from the tap into the fermenter as this will create lots of splashing which will introduce oxygen which will help fermentation. If you are cooling in the fermenter then you do need to transfer carefully so drop us an email info@brewuk.co.uk and we'll send you some tubing no charge,

    Pleased but not over impressed
    Review by colin 12on 04/12/2012
    I made my own boiler about 6 months ago when starting AG brewing and decided to install 2 heating elements and used the temp control probe from my ST1000 setup as a thermostat, all was good but it looked a bit DIY for my liking, it worked well though until one of the switches started to stick so decided to spend some money on a decent boiler within my budget.

    The Brupaks boiler was in budget and looked good. On my first brew day I set the temp on the thermostat to 80ish oC for my strike temp but it seemed to take an age(thought it was due to the single element) so I took a reading with the thermometer and it was a lot higher than the set temp about 15oC higher?

    I was really pleased though when it came to a rolling boil and stayed as a rolling boil as I thought that would be out too.

    All in all I would recommend this but I would like to try others to compare.

    Recommended, does what it says
    Review by Peteon 16/04/2012
    Boiler works fine, good rolling boil is easy to get and works efficiently as long as you clean heating element, with supplied brush, at end of every boil (takes 1 minute). Sturdy, easy to clean and well made.

    Response to cut off issues
    Review by Berton 23/01/2012
    This boiler is great - but you MUST remove lime scale & dirt from the element or it will cut out guaranteed. I found this out the hard way(twice) like Mark, but since cleaning the element before every use I have never had the problem since.

    Clean with 1 part distilled vinegar, 1 part water. Boil for about 10 minutes and remove dirt with an old toothbrush. Empty, then boil with about 2 litres of clean water to get rid of the vinegar.

    No more cut outs

    Fine for boiling water but not a reasonable strength wort.
    Review by Markon 09/10/2011
    Brewing a winter beer today all grain. Tried to boil the wort strength 1050 o.g. , no joy, the brupack boiler keeps cutting out. The problem seems to be with the sugars from the crystal malt forming a fine coating over the element, the boiler thinks its dry and switches off. Real shame ,up until today no problems but then I have being brewing lighter Summer Ales around the 1038-1042 o.g.

    Response from BrewUK - Hi Mark, the problem is you must ensure that the element is clean and free of limescale otherwise you will get problems with cut outs. If the element is clean then there is a fault with the boiler and I'm sure we can sort this out for you via Brupaks. Please email us with your order details so we can address this for you.

    Good Boil!
    Review by Strudwick48on 04/07/2011
    Hygiene, speed of response to changes in setting and a good rolling boil are all excellent for this product.
    My only concern was after I took it out of its (excellent) packaging, filled it with some water and turned it on for the first time.......nothing happened! Turned out that the fuse was duff so a quick replacement and off I went.

    Very Pleased
    Review by Berton 22/02/2011
    Very pleased with this boiler. Came to a boil quite quickly and gave a fantastic rolling boil.

    Also found the central well, where the element sits captured all the hot break. Easy to clean, though the metal hop strainer took a bit more effort to get clean

    Review by James-Dylanon 14/11/2010
    This is a great boiler for it's price. Very sturdy and is perfect for a 5 gallon brew. It holds a really decent rolling boil and is really easy to clean afterwards.

    A fantastic investment for anyone looking for an easy to use, reliable boiler for AG brewing.

    Well worth the money
    Review by Jammeron 13/05/2010
    This is a great boiler and well worth the money. When you consider it comes fitted with a hop strainer and is designed for home brewing then its not bad price really.

    I wanted something that would last and this hasn't disappointed. Solid, easy to clean and great rolling boil which stays in the boiler due to the central element which creates a nice even roll.

    If you are looking to get into AG then save up and buy this from the off. You'll only end up buying one later and wasting the money you spent on a cheaper boiler.
