My friend taught me to aerate after pitching and also to rock/shake the fermentor every few days. I brew 2.5gal batches so it's easier for me to do that.
Really? Like how violently do you shake the fermenter? I'd let that habit go, personally, even if it's not a violent shake.
The only time I'll mess with the fermenter is toward the end of fermentation on a big beer. And then, it's a gentle swirl once or twice and warming it up.
