You can do 10 gallon batches of 1.055 beer or so. If you want to do bigger beers, you'll be limited to 5 gallon batches of those.

You will also need at least a 15.5 gallon kettle to end up with 10 gallons of finished product.

I brewed my first 10 gallon batch this past weekend on my single tier system

http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f51/brew...-today-117290/

There wasn't too much trouble with grain. 22 lbs in the Gott. 15 gallons in the kettle was a bit scary. I did use a defoamer, but I did have a small boilover with the first hop addition. I boiled for 90 minutes. Final output to two fermenters was a total of 11 gallons of 1.050 wort. With losses in racking I should get two full 5 gallon kegs.
