I think he may mean a 4-VESSEL system.

evidently there is something lost in translation, over here a barrel is 50 litres and I have my primary already bought for 26, converted an old keg into a boiler so that was free. buying 2 more primaries to converted to mashing tuns, this will be done by slotting them into larger drums and insulating with polystyrene to cut down energy costs.

Wikipedia:
In the U.K. a beer barrel is 36 imperial gallons (43 US gal; 164 L). In the U.S. most fluid barrels (apart from oil) are 31.5 US gallons (26 imp gal; 119 L) (half a hogshead), but a beer barrel is 31 US gallons (26 imp gal; 117 L).

Actually in England 1 barrel is about 164 liters. In the US 1 barrel is about 117 liters.

I believe you are looking to build a 4 keg system.

yeh it is a 4 keg system and I have 2 kegs and both are 50 litres, I have never seen a 164 litres, to be honest I would be terrified if I saw a 164 litre keg, its only 80 litres shy of my primary

your allowed to produce a fair few gallons before you have to apply for a license, however our microbreweries are tiny compared to you guys because your full sized breweries make ours look like tiny start ups

How difficult was it for you to get that keg? kegwatch is all over England trying to stop people from getting kegs.
