Well I decided the easiest way to keep my starter safe was to buckle her up! Gonna be weird explaining this if I get pulled over.

I just use my Rubbermaid 20qt cooler to transport either my 2L or 3L flask from home to where I brew. I make the starter two days before brew-day so that I can cold crash it the night before. Then the cooler goes either in the passenger side foot well, or behind the passenger side seat (I have a Ranger with the supercab). I toss a few cold packs in, along with the hops I'll be using that night and it's all good.

Just don't try to pass it off as a person in order to use the car pool lane.

Why do y'all need to transport your starters? The farthest mine go is from the downstairs kitchen to the upstairs kitchen.

Because my *******, neurotic landlord won't let me brew where I live. SO, I go to a friends place where we both brew batches at the same time. Since I'm using propane burners, it would be pretty much impossible to hide the activity at home. Plus, the above mentioned LL lives on the first floor of the two family house. I look forward to brewing at home with my next place (waiting to see which of four jobs I'm going after pan out, then I'm moving).

Ha, my buddy wanted to host brew day. So I brought the grain and yeast! He supplied the space, water and hops.

Your neurotic landlord has no legal recourse to stop you, unless you're violating an open flame town bylaw with your burners, in which case all he can do is report you. Common areas are common - available to all tenants for "use and enjoyment."

Only mention this because I am a landlord, and looked it up. Fight the landlord, then withhold rent based on your access to common areas being restricted unreasonably, and let him take you to court. The way it will end is you either get to brew whenever, or he pays you to move. MA is so tenant biased it's absurd, but in this case it works in your favor.
