I'm familiar with the process, but thanks for the link.
I'm sure the "pro" method works great or they wouldn't post it, but for a novice brewer, my fear would be that they would be stirring for 30 mins in the open air which would increase the risk of infection. The sprinkle on the wort method has been used with great success, so it just seems like an unnecessary step at this point in a "young" brewing career.
