I would say the answer is an unequivocal YES. I regularly teach a
beginning homebrewing class, in which I use the basic method of adding
dense wort to water. When I compare these beers to the pilot beers I
make doing a full-wort boil (with wort chiller), the difference in
flavor is pretty extraordinary.
The downside, of course, is that you need to buy a bigger kettle and
that you need to spend a little time and money on a wort chiller. You
have to decide for yourself whether the tradeoff is worth it, but I
think you will definitely make better beers this way.
