I have 4 beers I need to transport (I'm moving), 3 of which are currently aging.
One of them is currently on tap. I don't think I'll worry too much about it.
The other three are wild ales, one is kegged, the other two in carboys, each with about 1 year of age. I'm worried about the effects of splashing, specifically contamination and oxygenation, does anybody have any experience doing this? I'm also worried that disrupting the pellicule will cause issue.
The 2 beers in carboys are pretty sour, but low alcohol, I'm planning of adding some dark malt extract and repitching some ale yeast to bring up the body and abv, so I'm thinking I can possibly suck up some of the oxygenation with refermenting. Also I know some bugs actually like oxygen, so maybe they'll help too.
The 1 kegged beer is already carbonated - I've been having a glass every month or so to see how the flavor changes over time, could transport be a non-issue with this?
