I'm asking this because I'm going to squeeze it each time after pouring a small volume of the Must onto it .
Not sure what you are asking, but you only have to sanitize bag just before you put it in the must. If you want to squeeze it periodically, you can sanitize your hands first, then do it, but I would not do that.
The best approach to squeezing it periodically is to press it against the side of the bucket with your stirring spoon, which should be sanitized EACH time it is used.
There is a big difference between sterilized and sanitized. Even if you sanitize your hands, it is just not a good idea to use them and expose the must to potential bacteria.
Stirring the bag around and pressing it with the spoon is all you need to do. The CO2 keeps the wine flowing very well; there are currents inside the fermentor that you don't even see.
