Wife is not a fan!

16 posts in this topic

I did my second brew on Saturday; Ocktoberfest. I don't know if it's the wort cooking or the supplemental pack, but my wife does not like the smell at all! I didn't think it was as noticeable on my first brew (American Ale), but I could be wrong. My wife made me boil some cinnamon sticks after I got done with the beer, to kill the smell. Personally, I'll take the wort smell over the cinnamon sticks.

I agree with EVERY response on this thread!  My fiancé hates the smell of the hops boiling.  Really nothing I can do about it until I start doing all-grain outside in the spring.

When I was bottling the first brew, I spilled a few ounces on the floor. I didn't clean it up right away, as I was kind of busy bottling while the trub was still stiff. I thought it smelled great! She, who must be obeyed, didn't agree!  :rolleyes:

whats not to love about the smell of raisin bran and herbs?   wort boils always smells like that to me... raisin bran and herbs.  maybe I got lucky. I have a wife who volunteers to help any way I let her... and doesn't mind cleaning up for me when I'm too pooped to do it.
