I am going to buy an all in one system (either the Anvil Foundry or BrewZilla) and I was wondering if the wort chillers that come with them are any good or if I should buy a different one? What is the best wort chiller for the Anvil Foundry or BrewZilla?

The chiller that comes with the Foundry works pretty well, but if you’re looking for the best chiller for an all-in-one, we recommend the JaDeD Scylla Immersion Chiller: https://jadedbrewing.com/products/the-scylla-designed-for-use-in-all-in-one-brewing-systems?aff=37

I brew on an Anvil Foundry and love it! The wort chiller isn’t bad, but it takes me a fairly long time to get to pitch temperatures with it. I am planning on upgrading to a Scylla from JaDeD.

I used to use a Hydra with my propane system before I started brewing on a GrainFather. Great chiller. I will need to check out the Scylla. I did not know that they made one for the electric BIAB systems.

I am LOVING this Scylla chiller from JaDeD Brewing! I really love my Anvil Foundry but I wasn’t a huge fan of the included chiller. The Scylla is a great upgrade, and JaDeD even built me in a whirlpool arm. This got my chill times for a 5-gallon batch to under 5 minutes and it’s way less maintenance than a counterflow or plate chiller. If you’re looking for a chiller upgrade for an all-in-one, I HIGHLY recommend checking out the Scylla!

Following up on this after a couple of months using the JaDeD Scylla and I can confidently say that the JaDeD Scylla is by far the best wort chiller I have used in an all in one system. If you’re looking for the speed of a counterflow chiller with the convenience of an immersion chiller, you can’t do better than a JaDeD Scylla for an electric system.
I also highly recommend getting the WhirlyBird whirlpool arm added – worth every penny. I also recommend paying a few extra bucks and having a threaded connector attached to the WhirlyBird so that you can add some quick connects.
