just raise one corner slightly and move slowly side to side, letting the liquid flow in a circular motion. definitely easier when you can see it in a carboy.

again, this is NOT necessary. it can be done and can help in certain instances, but is not a general practice and is not necessary to make any beer.

Well, my first brew was the victim of the 1.020 curse w/out me even knowing it. I bottled at 1.020. My second which I brewed on Saturday is an all extract Pilsener and I am going to try to get it *fully* fermented, so I'm interested in techniques for rousing yeast. It remains to be seen if it will stall out at 1.020, but I suspect since I used the exact same strain of yeast, that it might...

do it once a day until there are zero signs of fermentation.

I was really asking about getting the yeast that have fallen out of suspension back into the mix again, but my question was well addressed

And, mine is indeed bigger.

seems like the deceased horse has been thoroughly beaten, but I will add this...

Shea Comfort (The Yeast Whisperer) advocates daily agitation during primary fermentation to decrease sulphur and IIRC increase long-term stability, and that guy is a freakin' genius.

AND

Side by side comparison of 2 recent saisons...both with same yeast, similar enough grainbills & OG, similar enough mash schedules, and similar enough fermentation temp profiles.

The one that was agitated went to 1.004 in 4 days.
The one where I did not agitate quit at 1.009 after 7.
