The Sentinel® Boil Over Minder
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.
After one too many distracted brew day boilovers and tired of burned hops and dirty kettles, I got this guy and I love it!
I frequently do BIAB and this works great to rest the bag on while it drains 👍
I bought this because of experience boil over way too many times. It seems to do the trick!
Works great, feels great. Made solid and works like a charm
I don't like cleaning up boil over and I decided to give the Sentinel a try. This thing is twice the size that it needs to be for the Robobrew 35L. Next, I have upgraded my sparge arm with a cam lock system so it will not sit flush. It was not worth trying to ship it back so I drilled out a larger hole to make it functional. It doesn't look appealing but it is some what functional now. Overall the item should be revised to accommodate the 5 gal electric brewing community.
