My first brew has been in the primary for about 2.5 weeks now, and I'm planning to bottle it on Thursday evening. It's spent those 2.5 weeks sitting in a closet in the back of my house. I want to move it to my garage so I can get it up off the ground for siphoning to the bottling bucket, and in case of any spillage.
How soon before I siphon should I move the fermenter? I want to make sure I leave enough time for any gunk that gets stirred up in the move to resettle before I siphon.
Also, anything else I should be aware of during the process of moving the carboy?
