I enjoy brewing outdoors myself. You may have a good excuse to upgrade to a larger outdoor system. When life deals you lemons make ten gallons of all grain home brew.

LOL these responses are great! I'm thinking about growing from the 5 gallon stocking pot i stole from my mom to a 7.5 or 8 gallon SS brew kettle so i can all 5 gallons at once. Looks like its my only option!

My gf doesn't mind the smell, it's all the heat and moisture that bother her.

Alright, I've heard more than one person say that their significant other can't stand the smell of the boil. Seriously? It's one of the best things I've ever smelled, regardless of the style! I get excited to brew just because I know I'm going to be around the boil for a while!

Seriously. I love the smell too...doesn't mean girlfriend does. Luckily she's learned to make herself scarce. My advice to others is just try to plan as much as possible. As far as I'm concerned, if I tell my girl a few days in advance I'm brewing, it's her fault if she's in the smell radius.

Mine likes the smell of the boil too but her favorite is the mash tun. I have to get her when I am about to put in the sparge water just so she can smell it. She also loves eating the grains. She's a Vienna malt kind of woman.

They never mind when we put up with a little bit of aroma.


Just sayin.

Option 1 - Tell her to suck it up.
Option 2 - Brew when she's not around.
Option 3 - Brew outdoors.

Outside of these options, you quit brewing or find a new girlfriend.
