Carboy shaken after pitching
We brewed last night and pitch our yeast at about midnight. I woke this morning to my wife moving the carboy around, (she had to get something out of the pantry) which stirred it up a bit. Will this affect the yeast flavor, lag time, or fementation in general?

No, you'll be fine.

Wuddup, space? Welcome to HBT.

Your beer is ruined. Send it to me.

On a side note:

Brother, if that carboy decides to blow off, your wife will be pissed. Capital P.

I'd find a better place to put it unless she has a RDWHAHB sense of humor. Which would make here a one-in-a-million.

I never thought about it blowing off in the pantry, my wife would freak out. Good looking out, I probably should find a different place to ferment

Guys, need to move my plastic carboy. brewed beer last night. i am afraid that when moving the water in the airlock will drop into the carboy. do i take out the airlock, move the carboy and put the airlock back on? I am only moving to different location in house. thanks.

I loosen the airlock to prevent this. It will happen.

It won't be a problem if you put a star san mix in there, or vodka. But in principle I avoid this.

I typically either loosen the airlock or remove the internal floating doo-dad until I'm done moving it.

i like those s shaped airlocks better. they seldom pull liquid down into the carboy. the fruit flys also seem to have a harder time getting into them, than the little three piece float hoohas.
