If you go to the Board Index / General Tips and Tricks and on page 1 there are two topics worth reading which may help answer your question.

Look for;

How To: Double Mashing for Volume.

Volumes for High Gravity Beers in a 20 litre Braumeister

And from page 2

How to do a Big Beer in a 20 litre Braumeister.

I can not provide links as I am on my phone.

If I were a brewer looking to only do beers over 1.065 and not add malts or sugars I would not buy a Braumeister.
I would purpose build a 3V system to achieve the result.

If you are looking to do an occassional big beer then the BM is great as there are many other advantages with one over a 3V.
