Same here. I brewed last night, and my wife was all over the crushed grains, the mash and the wort. She can't believe anyone wouldn't like those aromas. Oh, and I can pretty much brew whenever I want to as well.

I'm one of the lucky ones. She has not only supported my brewing from day 1 (granted, she has never wanted to help on brew day), but when we were searching for a new house, she made sure that we had a good space in the basement to built an electric rig. She loves brew days because of all of the house smells and is eager to taste the beer through the entire process.

Now the only trade off is that she is into Pole Fitness (not stripping), and 'if she has to deal with my brew days, I have to deal with her pole jams.' Oh darn, 3-5 women in shorts and sports bras doing acrobatics in my living room.. rough life huh?

My wife doesn't mind the mash so much as the hops.

We have a fairly small place and to be honest, if I brewed inside it would be a bit overpowering in terms of smell.

So I brew on my patio. Which sucks now because it rains every freaking day and it's 90something with 100% humidity.

the things we do for love/beer.

I can't imagine why anybody wouldn't LOVE that smell. My SWMBO has a thing for bread, so she really likes the smell of mash.

Swmbo hates the smell of brewing. Still brew inside on the stove, but usually will brew when she's working or late at night when she's asleep as a courtesy. Funny thing is, she's the one that bought me my startup kit!
