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.

It really works
Works just like the video- prevents boil over to the side of the pot and burner. I use a rubber spatula to scrape off the hop residue back into the pot.

this thing actually works!
my wife kicked me out of the kitchen due to boil overs (but i built my own brew kitchen, so maybe that was good...).

have boiled over multiple times, even when i was trying to pay attention. thought this might help.

it works. exactly as advertised. kept flame at full, and no boil over. did not reduce flame when adding hops, which usually boils over again. still no boil over.

enough room to put a spoon thru the center, or to add hops without removing the sentinel.

did seem to concentrate hop material along the pot when i kept it in place the entire 60 minutes. not sure if all the hops were boiled the entire time. next time, i'll lift it, and stir down the hops stuck to the side...

worried that it was designed for the megapot kettles, so holes might not work with my bayou pot. didn't seem to make any difference.

Interesting Resuls
Well, after having experienced several boil overs in my brewing career, I thought I would give this a try. It works much as the video portrays. My problem is that I thought the device would prevent boil overs and it does not, at least in my experience. When I watched the video later I realize that the boil over minder is just that, a minder, but not a preventative device. While it certainly slows down a boil over and gives you more time to react, it does not prevent boil overs. I should have paid more attention when I was watching the video initially! If it actually prevented boil overs, I would give it five stars. It is well made and does give you more time, so I give it four stars.

Did exactly what it said
Worked perfectly. This product allowed me the freedom to get other things done while keeping an eye on the boil. In the past I was having to keep a hand on the flame control to time up a perfect fuel decrease as the foam began to form. Thankfully that is a thing of the past.

I do NOT recomend this. The first and only time I used this, I was using my old 3 gallon brew pot, added the hops through the opening in the Sentinel and vwooosh, malt extract all over the place. All the Sentnel did was slow the rising foam down. I chalk this up as another piece of junk I've wasted money on.

Will this fit any brew pot?
A shopper on Dec 14, 2016
BEST ANSWER: As the descriptions says, it fits 8 10 and 15 gallon pots. I have all three sizes and it fits the 15 gal megapot perfectly. Even if you have something wider than a megapot, the handled would support something wider. All I know is it WORKS! I even tried to get my brew boiling harder to produce a well up of proteins. ?The foam dispersed before it touched the Sentinal. I was surprised to see it in action to disperse foam before contact.
What are the dimensions?

BEST ANSWER: 18.5" diameter, 23" including handles
Will it fit a 15.5 gallon keggle?
