      Hi again Bravo,
      Like you I've been a bit hesitant to scale up over 200 litre ferments.
      The three thinks that spring to mind are;
      1) Heat. Might need a cooling coil but depends on abient temp and vessel. You can get some idea of the heat generated from the yeast makers. Check out the information on the Lammond website (might be getting a bit too technical)
      2) Stirring. Easy to do and will make a big difference as you will have far less surface area to volume ratio.
      3) CO2 output. Having a few 600 litre bres working flat out in you garage could start to become a real problem.

      Hope this helps,
