Thanks so much for the ideas all. using the O2 kit how does it work and what all would I need I did a search and found the wand. Do I also need a bottle or regulator? Never heard of using this contraption before.http://www.williamsbrewing.com/mobile/BIG-OXYGEN-SYSTEM--P3474.aspx

Here's an example of one. Mine is a bit different than this one, but most brewers turn the oxygen on just enough that you barely see bubbles reaching the top of the carboy, but clearly see them coming out of the stone. 60 to 90 seconds is typically all you'd need.
Pros: requires no shaking, ensures yeast have oxygen for fermentation.
Cons: it is one more thing to clean, sanitize and store. Also, they aren't free.
The oxygen bottles are readily available at a Lowe's or Home Depot in welding supplies.

Edit: I like the wand from MoreBeer a bit more as the stone is detachable so it can be boiled.
