I don't think "benefit" is the right term. They're likely using it as a tax determination vessel. Legally, since you are taxed by the volume of beer you produce, you must transfer the beer to a specifically measured vessel to record the total taxable volume prior to selling the beer. A lot of this is up to local/state laws/regulations.

Well...true, but only partly.

Patience is not the only thing that cures chill haze. Technique in the brewhouse to prevent haze-precursor formation in the first place is the method I recommend. Patience is what you practice when you screw up in the brewhouse, take your beer through the ferment, pour a serving, look at it and say, "Damn. Chill haze."

If you practice brewing techniques designed to reduce chill-haze precursors, you don't need patience.

Note to the wise: Avoid using absolute terms like "always" "only" and "never". Lord knows I've been guilty of that myself.

slightly OT, but does anyone know at what temp they would generally force carb, and how long it takes in the brite tanks?

Trying to build a vessel as large as a commercial fermenter that can be rated for even a lousy few PSI would be a crippling cost undertaking.

It'd have to be like three inches thick. More probably, and reinforced with external buttressing.
Have you ever been on a brewery tour?
