If your basement stays at 65* year round I say you have an optimal situation for the homebrewer. No need to bother with a chest freezer- which should stay where it is BTW. Even if you decide to use it for fermenting.

I posted in a different thread about this last night. I used to use carboys myself and made the switch to these a while back. You could use 2 for a 10 gallon batch easily with plenty of headspace. And you're right - you need bigger than a 5 gallon fermenter for the same size batch.
If it got to that point I'd be brewing something more efficient. Something that takes up less space and requires no refrigerator
