the enzymes are in the liquid, not in the grain.  Pulling and boiling mash liquid destroys enzymes.

If you're still planning on getting conversion (your beta and alpha steps) I'd advise you to do a typical decoction and pull grain, not liquid.  The enzymes are in the liquid and if you boil that before the mashout step, you risk denaturing them and not getting what you're going for in your steps.

I take responsibility for that.  When I first looked at the OP, I thought I saw no replies.  Then when I posted, surprise, I was #14.  And, I was sober, I think.
