Default Do I Stir Ceyser Before Racking?

Hey all. I'm about ready to rack my first ceyser into the secondary. Do I stir it beforehand to make sure the honey that settled to the bottom mixes and gets transferred?

Did the honey not get dissolved into the cider when you mixed them together? If you have an obvious layer of honey @ the bottom of your fermentor, then you should stir it gently to mix/dissolve it and NOT rack it over till the honey has fermented.
