It would just behoove the brewery to start with a 10 BBL 2-vessel system for greater flexibility, then the brewer can half batch if a 5 BBL batch size is desired, and full batch if a full 10 BBL batch is needed.
 
Lastly, it would still take the brewer less time to do a 10 BBL batch on a 10 BBL 2-vessel system than a 10 BBL batch on a 5 BBL 3-vessel system.
 
In the end, both time and money point towards the 10 BBL 2-Vessel System.
