This review can be taken at two levels, for general hot water provision for catering, or as a boiler for home brewing purposes. The unit is of a sturdy stainless steel construction with good quality high density plastic fittings, the photo is old the design is updated with the side handles also acting as a lid securing closure. The element (2.5Kw not the 3Kw as quoted elsewhere) is fitted with the base and accessed underneath giving the heating vessel a flat internal base with a slight recess to capture mineral deposits making it very easy to clean. With a 25 ltr water volume it heats from 10'C to a rolling boil in 1hr 10 mins (key staging on this is: 10 to 70 = 45 mins; 70 to 90'C +15 mins & 90 to a boil +10 mins). The unit has a genuine 30ltr capacity which gives sufficient head space to safely accommodate a rolling boil with water. The lid fits well with two vents and has a `lug and twist' securing method which is very easy to engage. The tap is robust and positive. It is a sound well-made unit and would be a good catering asset . In comparing the Burco Cygnet to commonly available plastic `bucket and element' brewing boilers I am very pleased. It is eminently cleanable compared to a plastic bucket and the construction will give a much longer useable life. You only get a 1-5 & High thermostat control compared to some of the digital read-outs on other kit but it can be `calibrated' by immersion thermometer and appears very reproducible (example on mine the point of the trailing edge of the 3 = 72, my mash addition temperature & 4 = 80'C, my preferred sparging temperature). I have had no boil over, to the extent I have modified my boil so that for a std 23 ltr batch I now over fill to 25 ltr and boil back. It is a strong rolling boil and is safely accommodated in the cygnet.Read more ›

This boiler is perfect for homebrewing. It can maintain a constant rolling boil for the required time and the tap can easily be changed for a more suitable one. I used 'Conex Push-Fit 350 Tank Connector 15mmx½"' and 'Conex Female Coupler 303 15mm x ½"' all from Screwfix (+ a rubber washer from B&Q). This allows you to put on any 15mm tap and any hop strainer configuration you like. Happy brewing!

I bought this to make beer in. I had some concerns about it holding a rolling boil, but these proved unfounded. I had to drill out the back of the tap inorder to fit my hop filter, but that was no hardship. All in all I'm very pleased, it's a nice upgrade on my old HDPE plastic boiler (but I should say that it has a 2.5kW element not 3kW as advertised).

I have had this catering urn in daily use for three months now and it has functioned very well, apart from boiling over spectacularly if left unattended with the thermostat set to "High". OK that is a thermostat issue and all thermostats vary slightly from each other. I was disappointed to find that the power rating of the boiler was only 2.5 kW and not the 3 kW as advertised on Amazon and certain other suppliers' websites. Even more annoying is the fact that this item is widely advertised as having a 30 litre capacity, when the maximum deliverable capacity is only 25 litres. If anyone is prepared to flout all safety instructions and fill the urn to its overflowing brim, and then when the water level falls to that of the outlet tap, to pick up the urn and tip out the three litres that lie below the level of the tap, then they might just get 30 litres out of it, - if they survive. The rest of us fill the urn to the "max" mark and stop drawing water when the tap stops flowing, thereby getting the maximum of 25 litres that is deliverable.

I bought this to make all grain beer. This is fantastic for a 5 gallon/40 pint brew and with a little modification can be your mash tun and brew kettle for your wort. I fitted a hop strainer to the inside of the tap (the one from Hop and Grape in Darlington fits perfectly - https://www.hopandgrape.co.uk/hop-strainer.html) - and have mashed the grain at setting 3 on the thermostat which is on mine a steady 70 degrees and then I drain the wort into my fermenting bin via the tap and sparge in the boiler - remove the bag of grain and replace the drained wort and turn up to 5 to get your rolling boil! After cooling with my home made wort chiller then all you have to do is drain out of the tap into your fermenting bin and then wash out the inside of your boiler! Fantastic for brewing!

I bought this for the sole purpose of brewing beer in it and it generally does the job well. I was looking for an alternative to an expensive brewing kettle and after some research went for this one.

What it does well:
It holds a lot of water - more than enough for a 5 gallon batch after evaporation. It holds temperature very well. It is easy to clean and ideal size for an all grain brew in the bag method which i use. The lid screws on too for a tight fit and has vents.

What it lacks:
The temp dial is done in numbers (1-6) not degrees - but anyone with common sense can work out what number is needed for what temp.
It doesn't have an volume indicator so other you have to make up your own method for measuring how much liquid is in the boiler. This is the only main fault I have for the unit.

Personally I use a long plastic spoon and made marks on the spoon every 10 litres - its not 100% accurate - but then again my homebrewing methods are not 100% accurate either!

Overall it helps massively with keeping the mash at a desired temperature and a rolling boil for the hops. I have noticed a marked improvement in the body of my beers brewed using brew in the bag and this unit compared to a large stock pot and malt extract.
