Anvil Foundry Mash basket clips - great add-on
« on: March 07, 2021, 08:06:26 am »
Just thought I would put it out there for the Anvil Foundry 10.5 gallon size - they have come out with really helpful clips for holding  the mash basket on the lip of the boil kettle:

They worked great for me.  I was worried about it being too tall and unstable, but I experienced no such problems and the sparge was easy peasy.  Cheers!

And they have now come up with a 6.5 gallon work around for use of the clips, but it requires removal of the spot welded feet at the bottom of the mash basket for the 6.5 gallon version.

(same link, just scroll down further for 6.5 gal video).

Mine, which I just got last month, came with those standard. I too was worried about being top heavy but I have used it four times and its all good.
Don't let the bastards cheer you up.

Are they retrofitted (welded feet still in place) or were they made without the welded feet?  Just curious... I have an earlier iteration and my control panel is at the bottom of the unit - so that tells you it was an early model.  I brew with it on a low table, though, and all works well.  I hope you enjoy your model as much as I have mine!  Cheers!

Mine have welded feet. The parts you link to actually did not come attached but rather the kit shown in your link were included. My controls are up top.
I love it, very simple and effective (like me, or at least I like to think so).
