Exposure to high temperatures
So I'm moving temporarily in between apartment leases. I timed it poorly, and I'll be bottling a couple days before I move out. I have five gallons that I'll either have to store at my girlfriends house (about 80 degrees) or take it with me where it'll be in 72 degree conditions, but have to endure the 5 hour trip home and back in the hot Florida sun. Which is the lesser of the two evils do you think?

I'd go ahead & bottle, then put those bottles in a cooler with some blue ice & take the 5 hr trip. Might be more of a PITA, but at least you can control the temp.
Regards, GF.

I would store it at the GF house until winter comes, then transport it to your new home. 5 gallons in bottles would take up quite a few coolers. I know that Florida doesn't get much of a winter but I would wait until the temps drop. Just my 2 cents worth.
