Anvil Foundry 10.5 (240V) Boil Off
« on: February 24, 2022, 09:58:35 am »
Just upgraded wiring to 240 volts for Anvil Foundry. Wondering what boil off rate will be for this system?

The manual sets out a chart for boil off, I believe.  In my experience, I get the wort to a boil and then "simmer" it at 50-60% power.  I get a bit less than 1 gallon of boil off, typically.

OOPS - I confused this with the mash sparge chart.  It is in the text of the controller operation section - 240V boil off at 100% = 1 gallon per hour; lower percentage of power results in lower boil off rate.

Thanks for the information! Looking forward to brewing with 240 volts. This will be my second brew with the Anvil the first brew was using 120 volts. Using 240 volts should be a big time saver.

Check your manual. It says .5 gallon using 120 and 1 gallon at 240. However it is always a wise idea to measure volume losses all along the brewing process for yourself.

Thanks that's what I thought. I did a test run with 5 gallons of water and I got a 1 gallon boil off per hour. Everything worked fine. So i'm ready for my next brew day.
