Buying a couple turkey fryer kits from WalMart was the best thing I ever did. Now the wifey don't mind it when I brew. I keep the mess and the smell out of her kitchen.

I was kicked out by SWMBO as well. Bought a Turkey Fryer, Keggle, Mash Tun, Grain crusher and wort chiller and I couldn't be happier. Of course in January I may not be saying that!

i love the smell of malt in the air...i don't think my roomate really cares.

i guess i could probably brew outside on my deck, but no...that would be incredibly uncomfortable. i'm afraid i'm stuck inside with extract until i move.

no hurry on that, but as soon as i find a decent place i'm getting a dog and some AG equipment!

Winter brewing is what sucks outdoors.. brrr... and you go through mroe propane keeping the heat up.

I've brewed in the garage with the door cracked open a foot in the winter.

I'm curious to try to see if a regular box fan and a furnace filter with granular activated carbon would cut down on the smell from brewing. My roommate complains too. For some reason the blower above my stove just blows air back into the room, I don't get the purpose of it, but maybe I could put a GAC filter in place of the metal screen. Maybe do some experiments and construct a breakthrough curve on brewing smells treated with granular activated carbon...

I ifnd that those who dislike the smell (my mom swears it gives here allergies) they tend to smell it a mile away when you couod swear there is no smell.

LOL..... I ONLY brew outdoors (Garage or yard depends on weather) and the wife will get up, walk outside and tell me what kind of hops I just threw in (of course she brews also *wink*) We both LOVE the smell!!

Luckily my wife likes the smell though it does tend to give us a headache. I've thought about brewing outside but Texas summers can be brutal and I'm not much of a morning person.

My wife doesn't like beer (much) and doesn't like the smell of boiling wort, with or without hops. After I did the second extract brew on the stove I was kicked outside.
I also ended up going AG since I was boiling with a turkey fryer any ways. I think it improved my beers, the turkey fryer and wort chiller take less time than the stove and sink (though the mashing adds time) and I save money.
I still mash inside and make my DME starters and priming inside, which causes complaints but not many.
A good stove hood will probably help the smell. If the kitchen is in an isolated room some window fans may help also. Still if your room mates are like my wife, its not going to be enough.

All funny stories. That's why I purchased a house with a kitchen in the basement...
