I would most likely wait until the new brood is capped and starting to emerge. Then I'd move the nuc into a single deep, and move a mostly full super (with bees) off the big hive onto the top of it. Then I'd swap positions of the two hives. I'd then go through and equalize them some the first to middle of September.
