After 30 gallons turbo yeast will generate sufficient heat to kill itself off before the highest yields are reached unless you chill the batch.  Chillers are easy to make and available at most home brewing supply companies but it does mean you have more equipment to clean and added cost to operate.  In my opinion there is a diminishing return for sizes over 30G but fewer than 100G unless you are only using it to store tail runs and such.
