The kegs would be spill/leak proof and light-tight, and they're not going to shatter in the back of a moving truck. Those that you've got Brett chomping on at the moment, you could either transfer back to carboys once you're in the new house, or simply hit the relief valve from time to time to make sure you don't get too much pressure build-up, and you'd be golden.

Over the stopper, that's a really good idea.

Revvy's one of the cool reverends. He has a Harley and a t-shirt that says on the back "If you can read this, the bitch was Raptured. - Madman

I gotta tell ya, just between us girls, that Revvy is HOT. Very tall, gorgeous grey hair and a terrific smile. He's very good looking in person, with a charismatic personality... he drives like a ****ing maniac! - YooperBrew
