Default Turbid mash - Sparging question

I've started a note sheet of a turbid mash schedule taken from BYO.http://byo.com/stories/techniques/ar...turbid-mashing

the author finishes it up with:

Quote:
then vorlauf and run off the rest of the wort, sparging with 190 °F (88 °C) water from the hot liquor tank.
wouldn't the Vorlauf step be pointless? you are not trying to clear the wort and the bed will set up anyway as you sparge. Correct?

Also he did not state it but I assume fly sparging would be traditional?

I'll post the schedule too, any comments/suggestions welcome.
Thanks, RJ

I found the answer to my questions by searching the forum (imagine that) in a thread I had skipped due to how it started. Slap!

http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f36/lambic-99063/

from Wild Brews no less:

Quote:
9. Vorlauf to remove husks and chunks.

10. Sparge with 190° F (88° C) water until gravity is less than 2 °P (1.008).
OK I can see how messing with/stirring the mash that much will cause chunks to get under my false bottom.

and yes, of course it's fly sparged.

Thank you for your time, there is nothing to see here, move along, move along...
