+1 I would love it if my wife would help me out... Or at least complain less about the smell when I brew

You too?

Yeah last brew day my wife said the brew area smelled like foot combined with dirty ass. Just smelled like malt and hops to me.

I'd love it if my wife would help me out as well. Last time I brewed she commented that she loved how it smelled up to the point when I added the hops, then she said she couldn't take it anymore and turned on all kinds of scented wax things around the house.

I get, "This is your hobby, not mine," when it's bottle filling time. Not the same when it comes to emptying the bottles, though.

My wife always times her visit to the brew shed during the boil, so she can put her face above the kettle. It's something to do with the steam being good for the skin. This gives me an idea - I could charge people huge amounts of money to sit in my brew shed during the boil with the doors closed (I have an electric brewery so no concerns with fumes). The steam that builds up in the shed could be like a spa treatment, similar to a sauna. I could make up some nonsense about how the steam from the malted barley wort is an ancient and traditional exfoliate. It could change the whole brewing business model, a spa/brewery. Guys could drink beer, and women could sit in the 'spa'.

LOL, for the last couple of brews, I've used raspberry vodka in the air lock because I ran out of the straight stuff. 2-3 days of the yeast going crazy makes for some interesting smells in the the fermentation room (guest room). She dislikes the smell on brew day but hates my new fermentation aroma.

Hmm, I wonder if she's been drinking Cape's ass beer?
