What I do to mix the wort real good,using my glass carboy before AND after I add my yeast is,
I put a towel on my counter top to pad it, Put a solid or holed stopper with a plug in it in the carboy,
HOLD the stopper, and lay the carboy on it's side.
And basically roll the carboy back n forth on the towel.
It will mix the dickens out of your wort!
JUST DON'T LEAVE GO OF THE STOPPER !!!! I don't trust it to stay put LOL
I also use this method to clean the carboy with PBW after fermentation is over. It's kinda like a washing machine action.
