The Foundry is an all-in-one brewing system from Anvil Brewing Equipment that comes with virtually everything you need to brew awesome beer, every time! This is the 10.5 gallon turnkey system that is perfect for making 5 gallon batches.
The included pump kit allows you to recirculate your mash with ease which allows for greater mash efficiency and clearer wort leading into the boil. The pump kit is also external to the body of the vessel (unlike many other all in one systems), so getting to it for cleaning and maintenance is super simple. Also, only silicone tubing is used for the recirculation unlike others that use built in stainless piping which is hard to change out and clogs easily.
One of the coolest features is that it is wired standard for 120v at 1600w power, AND can be easily rewired and switched to 240v running at 2800w power for faster heating and better boils! All you need to do is change out the plug head (which requires a little bit of electrical knowledge), switch the setting on the unit and voila!
The heater itself is an ultra low watt density triple element heater that allows for maximum heat output WITHOUT scorching. It utilizes a linear digital power control allows for superior mash temperature control. The controller allows to you to set a target mash temperature, and the unit will maintain this target temp to within +/- 1 Degree! It also features a delay timer so you can load your water in prior to brew day, and schedule it to start heating up to 24 hours in advance.
The Foundry has a uniquely designed grain basket with 16 lb grain capacity that allows better flow and less chance of a stuck mash than competitors units. The size of the grain basket gives you the flexibility to incorporate a sparge step in your mash OR just skip it all together and go with no sparge brew in a bag style method.
Lastly, the system even comes with a stainless steel immersion chiller, tubing and connections, An awesome all-inclusive all-grain brewing system at a great price!
