Default Move carboy after pitching the yeast?

I got into an argument as to whether it would hurt anything to move the primary fermentor immediately after pitching the yeast (as in driving it to my apartment). Anybody know?

Take it out dancing, shake it up... Just keep the temperature under control.

It would really hurt if you had to stomp on the brakes and spilled it all.
Apart from that, I can't see any problem.

I've brewed over at a friends house, pitched yeast and drove my carboy home. I just put it on one of my kids booster seats, strapped it in and drove very carefully. Just get it in a dark place with the proper fermentation temps ASAP and all will be well, and keep it sealed up during transport.

Which should get you into the HOV lane.

If you get pulled over, you might get some funny looks from the cop.

I do it on occasions, for group brews and the aha big brew day, often driving an hour after yeast pitch with it....just think of it as extra agitation.
