If you are using dry yeast, rehydrate the yeast in about two cups of warm (80 degree or so) for 15 minutes. Then pour it into your beer. You do not need to stir, but you can stir gently (NO SPLASHING!) Usually I give 1 or 2 gentle swirls with a spoon, being careful not to over - agitate the beer.

For extra sanitary caution, boil the water first and then add your yeast to it when it is between 95F and 105F (this is the recommended rehydration temperature for US-05, if I remember correctly- don't quote me. Look that up, it may be different for your yeast- should be on the package). Rehydrating at an incorrect temperature completely defeats the purpose of rehydrating in the first place.

if you have not repitched you can try giving your fermenter a gental swirl to kick up the yeast i have read that this works sometimes i have not tryed it as my frist beer(still in Prim) finished in 2 days @65 now its chillen at 61-63 for the remainder of its 2 week stay in the prim

Rather than just pitching some yeast in the fermenter, get a 1 liter starter going and pitch 12 to 18 hours or when the yeast are churning pretty good. I'd say your beer will pick back up in just a few hours.
