Currently brewing on a single tier keggle system but have the opportunity to get some 50 gallon drums for a good price. Should I go for it? Most likely I wont be brewing with them for a while and i'll stick with my 15 gallon set up...but in the future I would like to upgrade. What to do what to do.

I'm always puzzled when I read questions like this one. Only you can make the decision because only you would know the other factors in the equation. That's a lot of beer to be brewing per batch. You would need a lot of space to not only brew, but also to ferment, store and probably refrigerate too. Why do you want to upgrade? Consuming the beer faster than you can brew it or what?

Since you asked, Proceed.

But seriously, What do people do with 50G batches!? I get sick of a single 10G by the second keg.
