Ends Soon: Get a Deal on Recently Announced: Anvil Foundry Brewing System

Adventures in Homebrewing has picked up Anvil’s new Foundry All in One Systems

From the 10.5 gallon system description: “The most versatile brewing system on the market, the 10.5 Gallon Anvil Foundry All-in-One Brewing systems is loaded with innovative features, designed for homebrewers. The Anvil Foundry holds up to 16 lbs. and increases batch efficiency with the uniquely designed High Flow Grain Basket, with 150% more perforations, drastically reduces the chance of a stuck mash. Double wall insulation helps increase heating speeds and maintains mash temperatures. Linear digital power control allows you to fine tune your boil and the switchable voltage, between 120V 1600W and 240V 2800W, means faster heating and better boils. The included high capacity stainless Immersion Chiller with Hoses & Fittings quickly chills your batch after the boil.”

These recent announced systems are on pre-order at AIH.  Like all Anvil Equipment, these are on MAP (minimum advertised price) agreements that don’t allow retailers to discount.

Stacks With: For a limited time, AIH is giving bonus rewards points based on your purchase total.  Those can add up to an 750 points in rewards on top of the 5% or so you already get.  The great thing about this promo is that it works on lines that are typically not discounted – Blichmann, SS Brewtech and more.  This DOES work with Anvil gear including the pre-order Foundry systems.  I’ll use the 10.5 gallon system with recirculation as an example.  That’s selling for $469.99 and earns 470 points + 750 bonus points or 1,220 points.  That’s the equivalent of about $61 toward a future purchase.  Whammo!

Note that this is not a direct discount on any Anvil product.  All Anvil gear is selling for full price.  You get credit toward a future purchase.  But it is a great way to get a defacto discount on these items.

Hands on Review: Anvil Bucket Fermentor Cooling System + limited time deal!

This review is by Homebrew Finds Contributor Brad Probert.  Brad is an engineer, expert homebrewer and experienced reviewer.  Grab a link to Brad’s website at the end of this review.

Anvil Bucket Fermentor Cooling System

Blichmann created the Anvil line of equipment to provide good gear at an affordable price. Across the line-up, you can find great quality stuff that’s notably cheaper than other high-end brew gear. By making it more affordable, it allows more homebrewers to step up their equipment. I reviewed their 7.5 gallon stainless bucket fermentor a little over a year ago. It was a great product, but it wasn’t compatible with my existing fermentation temperature control systems. So I was excited to see they came out with a custom system. And as per their formula, it was upper tier brewing capability at an attainable price.


Limited Time Deal!

The system is targeted to those looking to control their temperatures in the 50-55F temperature zone where lager yeast provides its cleanest flavors. It comes with a neoprene insulating jacket to insulate the walls of the bucket, a cooling coil & thermowell mated to a special stopper, a submersible pump and cooling lines to circulate your cooling water, and a digital controller. The neoprene jacket is custom-made for the Anvil fermentor, with cut-outs for the handles, the lid clamps, and the spigot.

I’ll use the 7.5 gallon bucket fermentor system as an example.  That’s selling for $129.99 and earns 130 points + 150 bonus points or 280 points total.  That’s the equivalent of about $14 toward a future purchase.  This setup is very close to the next tier.  Add on 1 of 12 recipes that ship for free and you’ll qualify for the next tier.  I’ll pick the Summer Shandy Kit which is selling for $30.99 as an example…. $30.99 + $129.99 = $160.98.  So you’d get 161 points + 450 = 611 or about $30.55 in value toward a future purchase AND… you’ll still qualify for free shipping.  Whammo!

Hands on Review: Anvil Bucket Fermentor

This review is by Homebrew Finds Contributor Brad Probert.  Brad is an engineer, expert homebrewer and experienced reviewer.  Grab a link to Brad’s website at the end of this review.

Anvil Stainless Steel Bucket Fermentor

It’s well known that you don’t have to just ferment in that plastic bucket that came with your homebrew beginner’s kit. When you are ready to upgrade there are multiple material options, and varying levels of size/features. As it goes with most homebrew gear, brewers love stainless steel. So, of course you can get your fermentor in stainless steel, too.

Stainless provides a better oxygen-proof barrier than the plastic brew buckets and is easy to clean. The easy cleaning not only makes the worst job in homebrewing (brew day clean-up) slightly better, it also means you don’t have to worry about things hiding in crevices to sneak out and do funky things to your beer. Stainless is also durable and long-lasting, meaning you can look at it like a longer-term investment. Typical price tags on steel fermentors also make you consider it from a longer-term investment perspective as well.
