Moving bottles with sediment

Depends on how well settled the sediment is to begin with. The key is to keep the bottles upright so that the surface of the liquid remains in the confined space in the neck. Assuming normal flat ...

Transporting over carbonated glass bottles

If the beer is overcarbonated, I'd just degas it. Lift the cap of each bottle, let the CO2 escape until the foam reaches the cap, let go; repeat as many times as necessary, waiting for the foam to ...

Can transporting bottles affect the outcome of the brew?

I'm moving apartments in couple months. Will transporting wine demijohns mess up the fermentation?

It will be fine. Just keep it covered from light and cool. Make sure your air-lock doesn't lose it's fluid in the move. Only concern is if your changing elevation from high to low by 2-3k feet, you ...

I'm moving apartments in couple months. Will transporting wine demijohns mess up the fermentation?

Two things. You can delay the wine but picking and freezing the flowers. Should not effect the flavor or quality. Second thing, a demijohn, carboy or whatever is like a giant bottle so in effect if ...

Moving bottles with sediment

I make bottle conditioned beers all the time and have never (touch wood) had a problem with them clouding up during transportation. Unless you are hauling the over dirt tracks in the back of a truck ...
