I can't think of a better smell than throwing hops in a boiling pot of wort on a cold winters day outside! Jalapeño ale coming up...

It really is a wonderful smell eh? Last weekend when brewing my wife finally told me "that smells really good!"

I thought she'd never come around!

Really? My girlfriend complaining that the house stinks is how I know it's going to be good!

My thoughts exactly.

I love the smell, but she hates it.

I keep the window cracked and it has gotten better, but hops in a boiling pot smells amazing.

My wife likes hops, but she doesn't like to smell my brewing, especially when she was pregnant . She bought me my brewpot and my first Cajun Cooker so I could move out the garage.

Mashing in, or boiling a decoction smell great too. My wife likes the malt aroma, but she hasn't come around to liking hops yet. Both her and my son hate hops.
