Don't mind the wort aroma but if it pulls the steam and burner fumes out to where I just have to have the side door and one window open I will be happy the garage door lets in to much cold whether lol

Do also take heed of the advice from others above on makeup air. I have gas appliances in my space but don't provide makeup air, but I carefully monitor with a CO meter.

Mabrungard, can you post some more pics of your plexiglas vent hood?  What a great idea!

FWIW here is my setup. The "hood" is a storage bin from Walmart. It's not connected right now but I use 6" semi-rigid pipe from the fan to my dryer outlet, then a 6" > 4" reducer and just disconnect my dryer vent when I brew. It doesn't capture 100%, but after 150+ brews the paper on my exposed insulation directly above the rig is only mildly wrinkled. The humidity in my basement actually goes down when I have this on...

You might want to message Martin about this. He posted that picture in 2015 when this thread was started.
