Well while I was in the middle of my boil the wife came home, What's the first thing out of her mouth???? "What the hell is that smell?" Ummmm, my beer I say. I had just put the hops in 5 mins before. The next thing she says is no more, so the only way I can get away with Ag is if she goes away for the night. That happens once a year. Oh well, I'm glad I didn't go out and buy a bigger pot. I will still do extract and keg. But at least I got to try it a couple times. Oh and I don't know how I did it but I hit all my numbers, pre-boil 1.053 in the fermenter topped up 1.042, 1.040 @ 80 corrected. I'm shocked, and I checked the numbers 3 times just to be sure. Noe I just hope it tastes good.

Can you brew outdoors or in the garage?

really going to give up that easily?? perfect opurtunity to get an outdoor set up too.

And how bad does it smell? I have a very small apartment, and any of my batches (all have just been PM so far) don't smell that strong to receive a ban? And even if it is strong, its not really an offensive smell. Is AG much more smelly or what?

Seriously though, are you brewing outside or in? She won't let you brew outdoors?

I agree with wakadaka. When i had a boil over and scorched our stove i used it as an excuse to get a turkey fryer and start all grain, and she thinks she won! I love the smell of mashed grain it kinda reminds me of cookies and fresh brewed tea but she hates it also so now i brew in the garage. Win-win!

After she threw down the verdict, did she take your balls out of her purse?

Sounds like you have two options here. Divorce or brew outside. If you go the divorce route make sure she doesn't take your brewing equipment.
