    Boiler Sizes

    Is there any reason (beyond cost) not to start out with a low pressure steam-boiler that is twice as large as you need?
    Let's say large enough for a 20bbl brewhouse but will start out being used on a 10bbl?

    I would recomend it. We doubled the size of our boiler for about $4000 more. You never now when you need more steam. Our boiler was 3,000,000 btu for a 50bbl system.
