I put zest &/or spices in a hop sock 10-15 minutes left in the boil. Take'em out at wort chill time. I also strain chilled wort & top off water into the FV. Pouring in acircular motion makes the wort & water come out the fine mesh strainer like rain,aerating it pretty good. Stir roughly 5 minutes to mix well & aerate some more & you're good.
