Seyed Mirhosseini on Mar 12, 2020
There's two different pics. If i order now will i get the controller on top or bottom.?
Joe Denkinger on Feb 14, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Joe - This product is currently on back order. When it returns to stock, I would certainly guess it will come as the new version.
What is the expected efficiency of this system without any modifications?
Michael Hutson on Jan 27, 2020
BEST ANSWER: If you use a pump and recirculate, you will greatly improve your efficiency. You don't need to use the anvil pump, if you have a march or a chugger or some other magnetic drive brewing pump, they all work fine as long as you have a valve on the pump output that you can control the flow.
Do I need to use mash grain bag?
Seyed Mirhosseini on Mar 12, 2020
BEST ANSWER: No, you do not. There are some really good videos on YouTube of people using this system that will show you how it all works in less than 15 minutes. I would suggest getting a Hop Spider if you routinely brew with a lot of hops, though. I also recommend getting the pump. I love it!
How long does it take from sparge to boil with 120V?
Brian on Apr 15, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Clearly, it would depend on your sparge temperature and also how much pre-boil volume you have to boil. In my experience, with an average brew of about 6.5 Gallons. it takes about 20-30 minutes. The time goes fast when brewing. I have had no problems with the Anvil not heating. The 3 heating coils makes quick work out of heating.

I got my Anvil before they moved the digital meter to the top. Mine is on the bottom. With this newer configuration, I HIGHLY recommend the Foundry with the pump.
What is the maximum grain bill for 10.5 gal. version? Can I brew barley wine with it?
Seyed Mirhosseini on Dec 13, 2020
BEST ANSWER: In this video they say 16lbs officially, but made barley wine with 20 lbs. It worked okay. It stuck two or three times, with rice hulls. https://youtu.be/plaATj7DcQc
Will the 240v set up work in the United States with a dryer 220v plug/extension cord?
Ryland Matthews on Oct 3, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Yes but you will need to change the cord end on foundry to the appropriate plug, if you search the internet/YouTube you see how to make an adapter cord that allows you to retain the existing 120 volt end which comes in handy if you ever want to use it elsewhere and only 120v is available, just dont forget to turn switch to 120v/240v on anvil. Good practice is to electrical tape the adapter cord to anvil plug as a reminder to always keep it attached to anvil and it's on 240v setting.
Does anyone know what this means in the Anvil Foundry specifications?
"Linear Digital Power Control and Solid-State Switching"
Steven Stark on Jan 4, 2021
BEST ANSWER: It believe it just means the controls (temperature and power level) are digital while the on/off switch is a standard solid state switch.
What is the recommended min. grain bill for 10.5 gal. version?
Seyed Mirhosseini on Mar 12, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Hello Sayed, the minimum grain bill for the 10.5 gal system is 8 lbs.
How long is the power cord ?
Anthony C Butas on Jan 3, 2020
BEST ANSWER: 5 ft

Fun system
I have wanted to move away from my three vessel tiered system with propane. I have only brewed with the Anvil once. Everything went well and it was much easier to clean up. Less heavy lifting and temperature control was very accurate. Mine is on 240v and the boil time was pretty quick.

Anvil has a gem on their hands!
Zero regrets with this all in one!

Boil is a beast at 240 volts, well designed and easy to use controls. I liked how the pump was both optional and outside of the unit compared to similar models.

Brewed my first beer this past weekend and literally the easiest brew day I’ve had.

Don’t miss out on this!

Perfect for City Apartment Brewing
I have to say, I gave this a 5 star just because of how easy this system made my brew days in my small brewing space. I have been brewing for about 10 years off and on, for the last 6 years I've had the same old Cooler Mash Tun and kettle system, I would fly sparge with different various heavy lifting setups throughout those years. I never could justify the cost in those years of systems similar to this. After years of researching something that would work best for me, the Anvil system was the right price, had everything I wanted and this pump is quiet!!!! I am limited, I only have 120, or a stove and kettle, both take the same amount of time to get to a boil and to mash temp. The boil is a little weak, but it's the same as my stove so I already had the boil rate setup in my brewing software. I have done two beers thus far in two weeks, and have enjoyed the process, it's all that matters, with limited power and space, this was still the best choice!

Like it so far - kinks to work out, but an easier brew day is worth it.
They really send out requests for reviews too soon. Only one brew completed so far. I did not order the pump, already have one. Much easier brew day than with my past setups. Two issues to sort out for future brews: 1) the efficiency drop is real; make sure to do some homework/planning is you are accustomed to high efficiency 2) @ 120V the boil is incredibly weak & I was not prepared for that. I have already made the adjustment in beersmith for my next brew.

Great system at a great price
I have made three 6 gallon batches with my Anvil 10.5. It took me two batches to get my parameters set correctly in BeerSmith. I am using the 120V option with a recirculation pump.
Efficiency. I am getting 65% BH efficiency using a 2 gallon grain rinse. I heat up my strike water and sparge water together, then pull 2 gallons for the sparge then dough in. It is really a rinse since I don't dunk the grains into the sparge water, just pore them slowly over the top. My grain mill is set at 0.035". I use a half pound of rice hulls also.
Brew day time. I have used the timer to have my strike water ready for me when I wake up, this eliminates the 1 hour and 15 minutes it takes to heat the water from ambient to 155 degF. My last two brews, I started heating my water and had time to weigh my grains and hops, grind my grain and sanitize my fermenter. I also had time to eat breakfast and drink coffee while reading. Since everything is automatic, you don't need to monitor the temperature. I added my grains and adjusted pH and got my pump circulating. The unit holds the mash temp within +/-1 degF. Once conversion is complete, heat to 168 degF and then lift the grain basket and allow it to drain and change my temp setting to boil. O let the basket drain for 10-15 minutes and then slowly rinse with the 2 gallons of water I saved back.
I get a nice boil from the unit but not enough to have to worry about boil over.
At 15 minutes I add my chiller. Once boil is complete I hook up my circulation pump and begin cooling the batch. I have a stainless steel tube to circulate around the chiller without splashing. Once the batch is chilled to my desired temperature, I am using my own homemade copper chiller. The included chiller is OK but a little slow.
My brew day is not any shorter using this unit, but cleanup is easier. I really like the fact that I can walk away from the brew and do other things and not worry about my gas burner needing adjustment or the dogs getting their tail too close to the fire.
The two beers I have made are both excellent (Vienna Lager and a Hazy IPA).
I would recommend this system to anyone wanting to get into electric brewing. I had a first gen RoboBrew and the Anvil system is far superior in every aspect. The 10.5 gallon capacity allows me to make keg sized batches of big beers. It's a great system.

Your going to love this system!
Just bought this and did my first all grain batch. It was so easy to use and I love this system. Recommend converting to the 240 volt plug and I will be doing the same. It took well over an hour to get it up to a boil after mash temp using the 120v setting. Bunch of YouTube guys recommend the same.
Lift and rest for sparge.

Great results
I had a beginners version for brewing. You know the buckets and pot for the stove. It did everything I needed but was cumbersome for my small place. The Anvil Foundary was the answer I needed. Everything is done in one vessel until fermentation. I has saved a great deal of time and space on brew days.

I have not converted the unit to 240 volts. The 120 volt worked well. Including the chiller and buying the pump version are exactly what everyone needs. I can't wait for the next brew day!
