A walk-in cooler has been mentioned a few times, and I noticed this on ebay:

I could probably cobble something together for a lot less, but this sure looks nice.

Dream equipment?

* Stainless-steel stock pot that is 12" high, 12" wide, and holds 12 gallons
* Unbreakable hydrometer

More and better year-round, single-level space for brewing, fermenting and equipment storage.  Right now, it's a combo of the garage, patio, and basement laundry room.  None of those spaces has everything I need year-round because of weather and other demands for the space.

I'm with you on this one.  It's not really a "piece of equipment" but a dedicated brewing space would make the brew day a lot easier.  It's never a big deal to setup my brewing stuff but there always seems to be more to put away after 6 or 7 hours than I remember getting out.   :'(

I'd like a dedicated brewing space as well.  I brew in the garage year-round and it works well but I need to set up and break down for each brewing session.

You just need to stop thinking of your garage as a place to put your car!
