Here's a link to his test...

Are you getting the right link?  This one is about trub from kettle to fermenter, as opposed to draff from mash tun.  Unless I'm missing something...

No, you're correct.  I guess I was thinking that it included the mash, also.

Bummer cuz I suspect you're right.  I have skipped vorlauf as well, but I have found that the vorlauf is beneficial (in addition to any flavor improvements) in that if I don't do it, the draff that eventually gets into my fermenter forms a very loose trub that is difficult to rack off of without disturbing it.
Is that a counter-pressure bottle filler in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me?
