I have my equipment in a town that is 2 hours from where I live, this last month is being hard to travel there too often so it is making very complicate the fermenting and bottling process. So I'm wondering if I can bring home the fermenter and continue the process here.

  • Should I bring the wort without adding the Yeasts?
  • Should I add the yeasts and then bring the fermenter?

Either way should be fine. Although I'd probably pitch the yeast before moving it just to avoid having to have another thing to do after moving it. 2 hours probably isn't enough for it to start fermenting vigorously enough to even pop a plugged bung out so it won't cause problems as long as it's secured in your car.

Just think of it as really good oxygenation of your wort. I have done this before a few times, and never had any issues. Just keep a little spray bottle of sanitizer in case your bung pops out.
