Thinking of selling my Anvil Foundry
« on: March 22, 2021, 08:07:13 pm »
I bought a foundry 10.5 gallon with the small batch insert and recirc pump. Wanting to upgrade to the spike solo and willing to get rid of it for 375-400 bucks you pay shipping. Not sure if this is allowed here or not.

It works good but the solo has the steam lid so I can brew inside without having to install a hood in the basement and drill a 6 inch hole outside

You can get a condenser for the anvil

This is rather expensive but cheaper than the cost of upgrading...

The steam slayer from brewhardware.com works great on the Anvil unless you've fallen out of love with the Foundry and just want a new toy. it happens.

I have 4 brews on it so far, two I really liked one was a dumper and one was so so I chose the wrong yeast for a dunkelweisen and it came out very tart.

I'm thinking of going back to my old boil kettle and using the Foundry for a very expensive mash tun and HLT lol

I have a few of those chapman 7 gall SS kettle/fermenters for when I wanna boil and chill and ferment in same vessel.

But willing to sell if anyone is interested.

What I really wanna do is still up in the air

If you want a more durable all in one, the Solo seems pretty solid.  Plus each component is replaceable- or so it appears. Someone with the Solo can chime in.  It is similar to my Stout Tank 18 gallon Brew in a Basket, which I have paired with the Wort Hog 130 controller and 5500W ripple element for 10 gallon batches.

I like that some of the work on spikes inventory is "assembled in the USA" when you can't find made in the USA

I thought about getting the foundry but decided on the Bräu Supply Unibräu instead. Haven’t received mine yet but its a bit cheaper than the Spike solo with the downside of having to ship warranty items to Canada if you have an issue

I used my anvil just to mash and sparge in and then my fermenter/boil kettle to boil chill and ferment in this morning. Kind of like that set up.
