A chiller that'll take the wort from boiling down to pitching temp in about 10 minutes.

During the winter I can get pretty close to that with my IC and WP chiller set up.

42 Gallon Blichmann Fermenator with a frost free upright freezer to put it in.  Or maybe one of those glass door commercial display freezers.

Time . . that is the best commodity I could use. I have my setup pretty much the way I want it and like it. But time is the adversary.
Just brew it...

Well I just bought my first house and it has a big ass garage and a full basement. So I guess having some money to be able to do anything with it would be nice. You know, like brew a beer for the first time in 3 months.  :'(

I have one temp controlled chest freezer.  I'd really like another so I could have a fermentation chamber and a lagering/serving chamber.

Considering my moving fiasco, I'd be happy with my kegs and CO2 bottles. Besides that, I'm really pretty well set. Maybe a pump, but that's about it.
