I love Oracle! I am currently a developer, interning at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory doing data quality work in their data warehouse using SQL, PL/SQL and Oracle Apex. I study M.I.S at San Jose State University, where I'll be graduating in May 2013, and I am also studying to get certified for Oracle's OCP curriculum (I am OCA as of January 2nd, 2013). My long term goal is to transition into a DBA role, but I am interested in big data/data analytics as well...

comment Which is worse: a weak boil or boiling with a lid partially on?
Am I right to paraphrase you as saying that, given a weak boil, a longer boil will be helpful for removing DMS but not for the isomerization of hop acids?

comment Would insulation on a kettle help a boil at all if the lid was off?
@Pepi I determined that the bucket heaters are turning themself off approximately at boiling temperature. If I turn off the bucket heaters, there is no observable effects on the boil (i.e., the boil doesn't decrease in intensity). I bought a third bucket heater, which should be a total of 4800 watts.

@Pepi did you use a lid until it started to boil? My kettle is induction compatible as I was able to boil a small quantity of water with the induction cooktop. My setup didn't boil after 1 hour and 45 minutes and then I decided to add a lid and it started boiling. After taking the lid off it kept boiling, but at a very, very small rate.
