I am looking to start homebrew (the method where I use extract and add my own hops), the only problem is I will be in a 2 bedroom flat with my soon to be wife. In the past when I homebrewed with housemates she has visited and noticed the smell. I am wondering what can be done to reduce the smell during fermentation. I am aware that boiling the extract and adding the hops can be a bit smelly but if I do it while she is out and open windows/use extractor fan it shouldn't be an issue (It shouldn't be as steamy as AG? I've heard people say it has stripped their wallpaper!). The problem is she will be studying in the second bedroom and I don't really want her to be distracted by the fumes (that is where I was going to put it, in a wardrobe possibly). Any thoughts on reducing the smell during fermentation?
