Even if you brewed today and let the wort sit cool until tomorrow AM you would probably be ok.

The MM we have in the HBS has been nothing but trouble. First the loose roller kept binding so we had our machinist replace the bushings with sealed roller bearings. Then the crush roller was too close so we had to make new eccentrics for it to adjust it looser. Now since there are no side plates on it it twists and binds on us a bid, so we're gonna add side plates and gear drive the driven and loose roller so that it wont bind up. Yeah, what a pain in the... I had it apart today because the loose roller bound up again and needed cleaning out.
This may be a bit late, but I found this website about the same time as the original post.
Check out www.conical-fermenter.com The guy has SS conicals for better then half the price of the same-size Bilchmans. I've got a 14.5 gal on it's way right now and John's been super to work with.
What's a realistic number for startup costs when opening a nanobrewery running on a 1 bbl system?
Got one fermenting as we speak. Zero sugar. OG was 1.049, which is still higher than I intended. Oh well
