Use some clamping cauls. They will help align all three boards for a good joint without biscuits or having to pound on them.

Edit: Here s an article to read up on them.

I’ve used cauls in the past for smaller panels. I anticipate that I would need probably 4 sets at least for a panel this long, and that starts to get crowded and is a lot of clamps I have to manage before the glue starts to dry. I was hoping biscuits would simplify things.
