      It's simple work it out your self.  Your wash is producing ethanol and carbon dioxide in bubbles rising to the surface as it ferments. Yes?  Now carbon dioxide is heavier than air, so it lies in an invisible blanket is on the surface of your wash.  So unless you try real hard by a lot of splashing and stirring you aint gonna introduce oxygen into your wash.  By gently stirring the cap in, from my point of view it lets more of a blanket of carbon dioxide form.  Hence forcing the yeast to make more ethanol/happy juice.
      Just because you can't see the carbon dioxide doesn't mean that it isn't there.  Its lying there at the lowest point,still unmoving quiet and deadly (just like the wind you feel it on your skin, you can't see it but it's there look at the deadly damage it can do).  Use your grey stuff dont be so worried about what can go wrong. Experiment have fun and enjoy your hobby
