Default Brutus 10 clone without lids

I was going to purchase 3 Blichmann 15 G for my Brutus 10 clone build. On the website however, they recommend the 15/15/20. The "lid swap" will not work as Lonnie does. Is there a way around this, or will I be fine with 15/15/15? (I am brewing 10-13 gal batches)

The bottle was dusty, but the liquor was clean~

I have the 20/15/15 and I recently ordered a 3rd 15. The 20 is a bit too big IMO but I'm going to keep it for batches that require over 28 pounds of crushed grain. That's the limit a 15 will take IMO. Go all 15's, you'll be fine.
