It's a 15bbl brewhouse with a oversized 20bbl lauter tun. I didn't want to sacrifice volume on my bigger beers. :)

Is it a combined mash/lauter? and dedicated brew kettle? Or do you mash in the kettle and pump over to lauter?

Combined MLT with a dedicated BK. What did you end up going with?

I ended up going with a 3 vessel system... Mash Mixer, Lauter Tun and Brew Kettle/Whirlpool.
30 BBL brewhouse and 60 BBL fermenters (x3) and 60 BBL horizontals (x3)

Getting my DE filter on Monday (likely) and am about to decide who is doing my concrete top dressing...

@Canuck - did you see you/hammond river brewing got a shout-out over at Ben's beer blog?
BBB: What are you drinking?
SC: I can’t get enough Hammond River, which is located in Quispamsis, just outside Saint John. Available only on tap in New Brunswick bars and pubs. “Nut Your Everyday Red Ale” is delicious.
