Not to be a dick... but this is a 1BBL setup. 1BBL = 31 gallons, you size your batch size for half of the vessel size...

You have 55Gallon ~31gal batch size = 1BBL system.

Semantics aside, I am jealous... pricing out a 3 vessel system with conicals for myself.

It may not be opened yet...just having equipment is not enough to open for business ..it can.sometimes take up to a year of jumping red tape.

I have the same Blichmann setup, but use all three tanks at 55 gal. For a barrel-filling day, I'll fill the mash tun to the max, and then split boil between a 55 gal and a keggle to get 50 gal yield (to fill a barrel.) Really like it a lot. Everything works very well never had a stuck mash.

Thats a lot of carboys... I started using discontinued keggles for non-barrel (boring) beers. But I do see the advantage of having many different varieties.

Great looking. You're living the dream. When you open for the public, it would be cool to show patrons all that cool glass in your basement , or have pictures of your fermentation rooms on your tasting room wall. I just think all that glass is beautiful.
