After I got started, it turned out that SWMBO doesn't care for the smell of boiling wort one bit. In the future I know to brew when she's not home!

Other than that it was pretty smooth right up until I started cooling the wort. My thermometer broke right in it. Luckily just the weighted balls and a little glass broke off. The actual measuring device was unharmed. All the broken bits filtered out pretty well when I moved it to the primary. I'll just be a little extra cautious come bottling day. Then I forgot to pitch the yeast, but that was an easy fix. Pop the bucket back open and dump

In 6 weeks or so, I should be enjoying a nice cold EdWort's Haus Pale Till then I still need to wait for my first batch of brown ale to carb in the bottles. They need about 2 more weeks. The I can finally taste what I've been doing here all this time!

Well, now you know why I brew in my garage. I take it one more step and brew when she's at work.

How can you not like that smell? When I was brewing indoors, I loved that my bedroom was above the kitchen.
