I would think the moving would be beneficial... Help the yeasties.. Could make a mess in your car though. No sharp turns you could make the yeasties angry and boil over.

Beer is always better with waiting, so no harm there. :-)

I would replace the airlocks with stoppers (just for the drive). You could even duct tape them in place to be sure they don't leak. Then find a good way to secure them in your car. I've buckled full carboys into seatbelts before and it's worked well - just pull the seatbelt all the way out first so it locks in place, like you'd do for a child seat.

What's a child seat?

Thank you for posting up this question as I am going to br brewing in the next few days, and the wife and I will be moving into our new house in a few weeks.
