Default Moving primary in car

So I have a pale ale fermenting in its primary at my brother in laws house. Prior to dry hopping it I want to move it to my house. Any harm in driving 15 miles with it? Will the moving and shaking do any harm? Thoughts?

It will stir up some yeast and trub, but it won't hurt it. I do it sometimes.

Agreed. As long as you give it time to settle, no harm done. Just don't let it slosh back and forth...keep her belted in. Good luck.

Should I let it settle for maybe a day prior to dry hopping?

I don't see any real need to wait. It will settle during the dry hopping period. Besides the dry hop reside has to settle also.

One thing too is cover it up so no sunlight hits it especially if it's in a carboy. Besides that there shouldn't be any harm in moving it. Yeast will get stirred back in but as long as you're not planning on changing it over to secondary immediately after the trip you're fine. Cheers.

I would also make sure its sealed up real good to avoid any of that yummy goodness ending up all over the place....try explaining that to a police officer if you get pulled over lol.

That's quite an open container you've got there. Please step out of the car slowly. Keep your hands where I can see them.

Seat belt, snug lid, big towel, don't hop too many curbs. It'll be fine.
