Default Brewing makes me nauseous, sounds strange.... anyone else?

I have done about 7 brews, I seem to think that each one has made me kind of sick to the stomach, to the point where i'm not even interested in drinking beer. This happens especially if I taste the wort (less than a teaspoon). Just wondering if anyone else gets this nasty feeling when brewing.

You know, I have to admit I sometimes feel the same way.

I love the smell of the boiling wort, but after a while it can seem to be a bit much. I think it's that cloying sweet smell and the smell of the hops that does it. It's great in moderation, but after standing in front of it for over an hour, it's a bit much!

I don't get that feeling when I taste the wort, but dealing with a lot of hops sometimes makes me feel a little funky - indigestion is the best way to describe it. I love brew day smells in general, though.

There is a kind of sickly sweet smell during and after the boil. I don't mind it but my wife absolutely hates it.

Default Smells and Tastes of Brew Day

I'm with Evets I just can't seem to get enough of brew day smells and tastes. I've been accused of drinking wort and not replaceing the boiling volume, but nobody can seem to prove it!!

The first time I brewed a batch, I had the same queazy feeling. Now I love the smell. My wife still hates the smell though, so much that she made me buy a turkey fryer and move the operation outside. I said if you insist.

No problems here, I've even been known to eat a hop or two after the boil.

Yeah it's happened to me, mainly after I moved to all grain and was brewing in the garage in the winter. I stopped getting that feeling when I remembered I needed to open the main garage door a bit though. Ensure you're properly ventalated and you should be fine too.
