You don't have to put anything on the top. Just be careful especially if you are going to mix a big carboy. And of course don't spill anything into it. Ebay has a lot of nice rare earth magnets and stir bars as well.
My first experiment is going to be mixing a mead! I figure if I warm everything up and mix it in slowly we should be good to go.
