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.

Beat MAP Pricing! Robobrew All Grain Brewing System + Hands on Review

robobrew

Robobrew All Grain Brewing System via Adventures in Homebrewing

from AIH: “The easiest way to start all grain brewing today! The Robobrew All Grain Brewing System is a 9.25 gallon (35 L) capacity electric brewing system that makes it simple for homebrewers to step up to all grain brewing without a mountain of equipment and costs. This system includes a stainless steel mash tun/boil kettle, recirculation arm and pump, water resistant control panel, grain basket/malt pipe, spigot, and immersion wort chiller.”

More Info

From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

The Robobrew features dual heating elements, one 1000 watt and one 500 watt, to give you full control over the heating process. Individual switches control the elements, allowing you to fire both elements to quickly heat your water to mash temperature or bring your wort to a boil, or just use one element when you want to maintain a constant temperature. The on-board water resistant control panel allows you to set and monitor temperatures. The delayed start feature allows you to set your temp (up to 23 hours in advance) and have your brewing water hot and ready for when you wake up or return home from work.

A built-in magnetic drive pump recirculates your wort through the recirculation arm. Make sure to add on some high temp silicone tubing to gain even more control over the recirculation process; it also serves as a great transfer/drain tube for the include stainless steel ball valve. Recirculating your wort will increase your efficiency and lead to better beers with greater yields.

A stainless steel malt pipe makes converting from a mash tun to a boil kettle super simple. The easy to left handles on the malt pipe lets you raise the pipe above the Robobrew system, with bottom tabs to stabilize the malt pipe while allowing your wort to properly drain. The interior of the Robobrew features etched gallon/liter markings and has a 1/2″ stainless steel ball valve to easily drain and transfer your brew. Once your done boiling, the included immersion wort chiller will bring your brew back down to pitching temperature in no time!”

BrewZilla V3 All Grain Brewing System, 7.9 L – back in stock and on sale for $429.99 + free shipping

Robobrew / BrewZilla V3 All Grain Brewing System With Pump - 35L/9.25G AG475A

Robobrew / BrewZilla V3 All Grain Brewing System With Pump – 35L/9.25G via MoreBeer

More Info

From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

If you want to jump into all grain brewing right from your first batch, or as an upgrade from malt extract brewing, the Robobrew is a complete turn key solution. The Robobrew is an all-in-one electric brewery that has built in elements for heating and boiling, programmable mash schedule and delayed start, a built in pump for recirculation, an onboard water resistant control panel for setting and monitoring temperatures, a removable grain basket, and a built in spigot for transferring. It is extremely portable and uses 110V power so it can be used nearly anywhere.

Automatic Step Mashing!
One of the coolest features of the Robobrew is the ability to program the unit with up to 6 individual temperatures and durations so you can step mash precisely how you desire. Simply press the “S1-S6″ button to select the stage you want to adjust, and use the temp, time and +/- buttons to program the stage. If you have less than 6 stages in your mash schedule, program the stages you want to skip with 00:00 as the time and the controller will automatically move on to the next step. When all the stages are complete, the Robobrew will sound an alarm and hold the last set temperature.

The programmable stages can also be used to set a delayed start of up to 23 hours in advance so that you can have your water hot and ready to go when you get home from work or wake up in the morning. In order to do this, fill the unit with strike water and program the controller with two steps. Step 1 should be programmed at a temperature lower than the unheated strike water (so the elements will remain off), and the duration should be programmed for however long you want the delay. Then program Step 2 with your desired strike water temperature and a duration of 1-2 hours, giving the Robobrew ample time to heat up and giving you a margin of error in case you hit the snooze button the morning of brew day.

The built in magnetic drive pump easily recirculates the wort during the mash. We recommend getting some silicone tubing to go with the recirculation arm. This allows you more control over the recirculation and you can then use the same tubing to transfer your wort to your fermenter.

Dual heating elements run off of a single 110 volt plug and have individual switches allowing for more control over the heating process. One element is 1000 watts and the other is 500 for a combined 1500 watts! Use both when you need to ramp up the temperature quickly either at the start to get to your mash temp or to go from your mash temp to boiling. Use only one of the elements when you want to hold a temperature.

The digital control panel makes it easy to see the current temperature and set the temperature you want. The digital controller is also water resistant so don’t worry about spills or some water dripping down the side. This controller is built for brewing!

The brewery also includes a stainless steel malt pipe with false bottom allowing you to easily shift from mash tun to boil kettle during your brew day. The malt pipe includes a handle to lift it from the RoboBrew and tabs at the base so you can set the malt pipe over the RoboBrew to let the wort drain out. It also has feet at its base to raise the malt pipe slightly off the base and help prevent clogging.

The included Robobrew stainless steel wort chiller is shipped with bare ends so you can set it up for your situation. We list below the most common tubing and fittings to connect to a hose, hose bib, or faucet.

What MoreBeer! loves about this product: Homebrewing is trending in the direction of all-in-one, all-grain brewing systems and the Robobrew is the ultimate value. The cost is half of the next comparable system with programmable mash steps and nearly the same as buying converted coolers and a kettle. We’ve brewed on all the systems and we can truly say the Robobrew is the easiest to use. We feel confident that a lot of first time brewers could buy this and use it with ease. At the same time quite a few of our experienced, all-grain brewing staff are buying it to brew at home. The unit is extremely compact because the pump is built-in to the bottom of the unit. You can move it around with ease which makes it perfect for guys and gals that have space constraints. Someone on the team also mentioned how they like that you can drain it via gravity without having to use the pump. We would choose the Robobrew model with the pump because the pump portion is really easy to use, increases efficiency, and eliminates temperature differences in the mash. All in all a great buy and highly recommended. Please note you will need a few extra pieces of hardware to connect the wort chiller and at least 2′ of silicone tubing for the sparge.

Note: The manual references an element for a different market. This unit comes with two heating elements for a total of 1,500 watts.

Features:

Stainless steel construction
9 gallon total capacity with a finished beer output of 5-6 gallons
Digital temperature controller
