Default stir must when?

Hey guys, quick question. I made two gallons of strawberry wine and I just poured the yeast starter on top of the must. Do I stir it today or wait till tommorrow?

I start stirring the day after I add the yeast, so that the yeast kind of find their way around first. There really isn't any reason that I know of to wait a day, though- that's just what I do. If I'm making a wine that makes a thick "cap", I stir twice a day until it reaches about 1.020, then I rack to secondary.
