Get a Deal on Anvil Brewing Equipment’s New Anvil Cooling System! + Hands on Review

anvil cooling system

About, from Anvil Brewing: “Keeping your fermentation temperatures under control is a very important part of fermentation for optimal flavor control and quality of the finished beer. With the Anvil Cooling System, you wont be disappointed! This simple system includes virtually everything you need to keep your beer temperature closely regulated at an amazing price.”

These systems are available for both sizes of Anvil Bucket Fermentors and for standard carboys.

Related Reviews; Hands on Review: Anvil Bucket Fermentor Cooling System and Hands on Review: Anvil Bucket Fermentor

Anvil Cooling System setups are available 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 Anvil Cooling Systems.

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!

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.

Kenley Fermentation Carboy Heater – Kombucha Heating Pad 12″ – Homebrew Warmer Kit with Built-in Temperature Control – Brew Vessel Warming Mat for Beer Wine Tea Home Brewing – Consistent Radiant Heat

More Info

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

  • THE EASY WAY TO IMPROVE YOUR BREW Creating a consistent brew temperature is one of the easiest ways to enhance – and speed up – your home brewing, whether you’re making beer, wine, kombucha tea, etc. This Kenley pad provides consistent heat day and night, giving your brew a boost.
  • CONSISTENT BREW TEMPERATURE The Kenley Fermentation Pad provides consistent radiant heat to ensure that your brewing vessel maintains an even brew temperature. The pad gently warms your carboy or jar, keeping your brew to 5-20 degrees (F) above room temperature.
  • SAFE AND EASY TO USE Put the fermentation pad on a flat surface, plug it in and set your carboy on top – no wraps, belts, mess or fuss. The Kenley heater has a built-in thermal control that provides an automatic shut off to prevent the mat overheating.
  • ENHANCES NATURAL BREW CYCLE By heating the bottom of your brew vessel, this warmer mimics the natural organic fermenting process, as the action of yeast creates heat at the base of the vessel. This enhances and often speeds up the process without negative impacts on taste or quality.
  • DESIGNED FOR HOME USE Made of durable, flexible and easy to clean material, this Kenley heating pad is ideal for home brewing. It can be used with plastic or glass carboys; bucket fermenters; mason jars etc. It is 12in in diameter and has a 6ft power cord with a standard 120V outlet plug.

 

Use in conjunction with a temperature controller to dial in fermentation temps.
