An all-in-one electric brew system with power options not to mention great reviews and the double walled vacuum insulated SS. I'm a yeti guy after all.

From research, seems like best value for the dollar electric all grain system. Made by Blichmann is a big plus

I wanted an electric brewing system that has both 110Volt and 220Volt options. It also has a large capacity for bigger beers.

Can I use this for 2.5 or 3 gal. batches?
Seyed Mirhosseini on Mar 12, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I did an experimental batch of 2.5 gal to the fermenter using only 4.5 pounds of grain on my 10.5 gal. version. full volume mash, no sparge. I had no problems. I recirculated the entire mash.
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.
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 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

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.
During the mash.

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!

nice unit but missing handle for grain basket
Wish i could write a better review on tis unit but I cannot use it until Anvil ships me the handle for the grain basket. Cant lift it up without it. Anvil responded after a few days and said they would ship me the handle. Still waiting!!!!

Finally got it..
Waited about 2 months for it, unpacked it and checked it out, Really nice unit, moving shortly so probably wont get to use it for a while. Hope to set up in a new brewing room with 240 v also got the Copper Turbo 500. Hoping to make some serious Libations. Cheers!

Well built, simple and convenient. Not sure about mash extraction efficiency problems.
I love the system. It appears to be well built. I used it for the first time this weekend and the 220v mode was impressive as far as heating quickly for electric. My only complaint was the efficiency of my mash extraction. I have done dozens of all grain beers using a few different methods and have had no problems with mash efficiency in the past. That may improve on this new system in time with practice and experimentation. I have read of some others having the same problem with possible solutions. Time will tell.
