Default Mash tun size for 1 bbl batch?

Would a 30 gallon MT work for a 1bbl batch?

Depends on how much grain you use but it should be fine. I used the mash calcultor at http://www.rackers.org/calcs.shtml and it show with about 62 pounds of grain and a Mash Thickness of 1.25 qt/lb it would take aprox a 25 gallon mashtun.
