Get a Hard to Find Anvil Foundry Brewing System!

anvil foundry deal

  • Anvil’s Foundry Brewing Systems have been wildly popular since their introduction.
  • This is evidenced by the fact that there have been consistent availability issues.
  • As a shipment becomes available.. it sells out in short order.
  • To my knowledge these all ship directly from Anvil.  That means there’s one pool that everyone is drawing from.
  • Prices should be about the same no matter where you purchase.
  • As of this update on 7/14, product pages are showing a variety of dates or no dates at all.  I know a mid July shipment was coming in and I’m seeing conflicting information as to whether that has sold out.  So, you could potentially get in on July’s shipment or reserve your spot in August’s shipment.

KegLand DigiBoil Electric Brew Kettle via William’s Brewing – on sale for $149.99 + Freebie

KegLand Digiboil

KegLand Digiboil from William’s Brewing

More Info

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

The KegLand Digiboil is an 8 gallon electric brew pot with precise digital control. Made of 304 stainless steel, it features 1500 watts of total power, selectable with both a 1000 watt and 500 watt switch. Perfect for brewing, distilling, sous vide cooking, and more. Keep in mind that although it has an 8 gallon capacity, we recommend you boil no more than 6.5 gallons, to allow head space to prevent damaging boil overs.

The digital display can be set to any temperature between 32° and 212° F, and hold that temperature to plus or minus 5 degrees. The valve features standard 1/2″ threads, so you can fit female NPT 1/2″ accessories such as cam lock fittings to the spigot for attaching chillers and other accessories. The rim features clamps, and standard Robobrew and Grainfather distilling lids will fit perfectly. 27″ tall, 12″ wide.

This unit draws a hefty 15 amps, and must be plugged into a dedicated GGCI outlet for safety. The unit should not be submersed in water.

The Digiboil does not come with a printed manual, but it is very simple. One of the first things you will notice is that it is set in Centigrade. To switch to Fahrenheit, with the unit on and both element switches off, press the plus and minus keys simultaneously for 5 seconds to switch it to Fahrenheit display mode. To set the temperature, turn it on with water in the boiler, and press either the plus or minus key until the set point starts moving, and release when your desired temperature set point has been reached.

When brewing with malt extract, you will need to get your water boiling, then shut off the heat momentarily while you stir the extract in to dissolve. This eliminates the extract from burning on the bottom, and prevents the thermostat protective circuit from throwing an error. As soon as the extract is dissolved, turn back on the heat and brew.


 

  • This is on sale for $149.99
  • Shipping is free or reasonably priced flat rate to addresses in the lower 48 states depending on your order size for most items.
  • Freebie: Place an order with a subtotal of $50.00 or more and enter web coupon code BEERDANA at checkout and you’ll get a free Beerdana.  No need to add the Beerdana to your cart.  Just put together an order of $50 or more and apply coupon code BEERDANA at checkout and it will be automatically added to your cart.

Hands on Review: Anvil Foundry Brewing System!

anvil brewing equipment foundry review

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.


Availability Note:

  • Anvil’s Foundry Brewing Systems have been wildly popular since their introduction.
  • This is evidenced by the fact that there have been consistent availability issues.
  • To my knowledge these all ship directly from Anvil.  That means there’s one pool that everyone is drawing from.
  • Because these are on a MAP agreement, prices should be about the same no matter where you purchase.  The biggest difference is going to be shipping.  Some shops may charge a shipping fee, where others do not.
  • Generally speaking, It seems batches are coming in on a monthly basis.
  • When you place your order, you should either get an in stock unit, or reserve your spot in the next available shipment

Anvil Brewing Equipment Foundry

There are a lot of all-in-one electric brew rigs on the market. The entry to all-grain for most was through a converted cooler 3-vessel system. It was the cheapest way to get into all-grain, and why so many of us came that way. Precision control and/or electric heating convenience came at a premium that you would upgrade to later. Well, those are now relegated to “old timer stories”. At the all-grain entry level price point, you can now get an all-in-one electric unit from Anvil for the price you’d pay for an Igloo cooler kit with a burner and pot. So now those getting into all-grain can start with the precision of digital temperature control, and the weather-proof convenience of an electric heat source.

Comparing Anvil Foundry Versions

The Anvil Foundry comes in two sizes, a 10.5 gallon and a 6.5 gallon. They share most all of the same features, but the 10.5 is targeted at 4-5 gallon batches, and the 6.5 for 2.5 gallon batches. There’s also an accessory you can order for the 10.5 to insert in the mash basket and then go as low as 2 gallon batches. Both of these units come with the option to add on a recirculation kit, which provides a pump and some other hardware bits to allow you to recirculate wort during the mash. Every unit also has a simple switch you can change to run on 120V or 240V. However, the unit comes with a 3-prong 120V plug, so if you do opt for the 240V setting, you have to cut the plug off and attach the appropriate 240V plug type.
