Once every coupla weeks, maybe a month or more, I have a brew session. The main heat source is the kitchen stove. It is BIAB - simple, right? One kettle. One sanitizing bucket. One bucket to receive the wort. A toolbox fulla brewing shtuf - thermometer, mash spoon, other junk.

WHY DO YOU HAVE STUFF ALL OVER THE KITCHEN? No one can move in here!

Huh? There is a one item on the stove. The buckets are in the next room until needed. I installed 23 ft of counter so one toolbox is not gonna clog up the works or anything.

And it is not like the Alternate Spousal Unit does that much cooking.

My g/f came in the other day and I had a skinned deer on my counter finishing butchering it. Never said a word, knows if she doesn't like what I do in my kitchen she is more than welcome to leave.

She brews so helps most of the time. Been way before we started dating since I've brewed in the house though.

All hell breaks loose when the hop additions go in when brewing on the stove. "You are making the whole house stink". What I thought smelled great, she is running with her nose covered bitching how its going to take days for the house to quit "stinking".

Brew outside.

less hassle, better beer (more volume).

It just got a lot tougher to be a deer.

My wife has come home to me washing tiller parts in the bathtub, and the tiller apart in the living room. Brewing in the kitchen is tame.

She does think it smells like rabbit food though.

And brewing outside is easier.
