Then more very gentle swirls for about 5 seconds. Then leave it alone for another half an hour.

Try that as a starting point with a test roll, let us know if it's not remarkably better.
I'm sorry but this is not good advice. Stand development is just not good. And the grain will still be pronounced. I'm not even sure there is a connection between shaking and grain size.
