I'm sorry, I meant US-05 dry yeast. I just repitched and gave the bucket a good shaking. It was my first batch so I'm not sure if it had a negative effect or not, got it fermenting though. It tasted ok to me and I likely won't make that kit again so won't be able to make any kind of comparison.

Shaking can cause some off flavors. I am considering a repitch and a couple gentle stirs with a sanitized spoon.

One of the methods I use for aeration is to leave the bucket flat on the floor, and gently wiggle the bucket whilst keeping it flat on the floor, similar to agitating a washing machine. It will get some movement in your fermenter and will prevent any major oxidation or contamination. Just go it gently and the wort will kind of swirl back and forth. Do this with the lid on.
