I have a bit of a stalled fermentation. I raised the temp and its starting up again after a week. Normally shaking up a bucket after/during fermentation is bad practice due to oxidation.
I'm wondering if I have slow airlock activity the headspace is filled with co2 and giving it a good shake to stir things up a bit shouldn't hurt?

Any thoughts?

Agee, oxydation is not concern due to co2 blanket on top of it.
