I think a cheapo 16 inch box fan would do the job...
Harbor Freight if close by my house so I decided to pick up the 8" high volume fan - I'm planning on doing some drywall/insulation work too soon and saw more uses for this than brewing.
For a crude test, I cut a piece of cardboard for the window opening with an 8" hole and butted the fan up to it, opening a window across the kitchen. The airflow seemed significant and I'm thinking this will be the way to vent moisture and smell from boiling inside. The drawback is that it's loud - but, if that is really a problem I can get their flexible tube and put the fan outside. Time to brew another batch to see how this works.
