I use a wine degasser to aerate my wort. It's a rod that attaches to a power drill and at the end of the rod there are fins that really mix the bejeeezus outa the wort. It's easy and seems to work just fine.

I shake the primary like crazy for 5 minutes back and forth, side to side, etc. Never had any problems.

I've not tried it, but I read somewhere that putting the bucket on a football makes it easier to shake.

Pour wort into carboy and shake for two minutes. This was listed on wyeastlab.com as a viable option to increase oxygen in the wort prior to pitching yeast. They have a chart on there detailing what certain methods yield.

Last night I was thinking what we need is one of those machines that mix up cans of paint by shaking them like mad
