Any thoughts about stirring before initial vorlauf/runnings (batch sparge)? I have read different techniques from folks here and see it both ways.

I don't bother as I tend to stir the mash every 15 minutes of so.
Remember one unassailable statistic, as explained by the late, great George Carlin: "Just think of how stupid the average person is, and then realize half of them are even stupider!"

grains in pounds(G) X 36(average points per gallon of grains) / batch size in gallons(g) = maximum efficiency(ME)
OG / ME = brewhouse efficiency
I always give it a good stir, don't think it probably matters a whole bunch. I do stir once or twice during the mash too.
Thanks for the replies.
