Default is sleeping in the same room as my beer dangerous?

I know the fermenting put's out carbon dioxide. Is it dangerous for me to sleep in the same room i am brewing in with only 2 5gal batches at a time ?

Only if the beer is in bed with you, but then you have a whole other problem.

One thing I can say is. The first batch of Apfelwein that I made got me horribly sick. I used to sleep on a fouton that backed up to where all my carboys sat and the fumes(rhinofarts) that it was putting off during the most vigorous fermentations made me horribly sick.
I woke up at 4am with this overwhelming smell that I had been smelling all day, except it was super intense because all the windows where closed and fans off.

I puked all over the fouton, kitchen, hall and bathroom. I am pretty sure that it was all the sulfur fumes that I was taking from the off gasing.

Beware the osmosis.

Also, wear protection.

A futon is not a real futon until it has been puked on. Besides, they deserve it.

Well, fermenting beer and a live woman give off about the same amount of CO-2. Either one is fine but both at once can be dangerous. Now you know why so much beer is brewed by monks.
