In fact, a 5 BBL system with a whirlpool is actually more expensive and occupies more space than a standard 10 BBL 2-vessel system, so the numbers don’t exactly pencil out!

It would just behoove the brewery to start with a 10 BBL 2-vessel system for greater flexibility, then the brewer can half batch if a 5 BBL batch size is desired, and full batch if a full 10 BBL batch is needed. Lastly, it would still take the brewer less time to do a 10 BBL batch on a 10 BBL 2-vessel system than a 10 BBL batch on a 5 BBL 3-vessel system.

So in the end, both time and money point toward the 10 BBL 2-Vessel System!
