But if you yourself could detect no difference in the two batches, would you still vorlauf?
I have a "belt and suspenders" kinda personality sometimes, so yeah, I probably still would. Every once in a while I get more "stuff" coming out than I anticipated and there's no way for me to tell when that will happen. Since it's quick and easy, I/d rather do it than wish that I would have done it. OTOH, if I was one of the guys I read about who vorlauf several gal. I'd probably reconsider that.
