Which process is used for filtering such a big amount of wort?
I will have to ask. I have not been a club member very long.

I asked. They have a large false bottom. There are a couple people on the fringes of the club who weld and enjoy drinking beer.

You have to consider the amount of energy required to heat the volumes of liquid. So if your herms system takes 30 minutes to heat 10 gallons then to heat 300 gallons would take 15 hours. Or if that herms system used 5500 watts you would need 165000 watts to heat in the same amount of time. You need lots of power, full size breweries usually use boilers and steam jacketed equipment.
