Description Lets come join together again see our progress on the build up of an open source experimental incubator for variety of fermentations. We will share experience, discuss and prepare our plans for 2015.

Come and join us in a project aimed to build up an open source based experimental incubator which can be used for variety of food, beverage and bio hacking projects allowing for easy control and monitoring of internal condition like temperature and humidity. We want to establish more working groups to develop prototypes which can be easily and relatively cheaply assembled. We need to plan our budget securing the funding later on, you can find more info on our fhb wiki portal under the Experimental Incubator project and sign in if you like to our experimental incubator mailing list mentioned there.


One of the basic devices needed for experimenting with growth of variety of microbes for many different purposes ranging from bio luminescence art, magic mushrooms or to more frequently persuaded food and beverage fermentation is incubator. Ranging from the fields of extreme hard core bio-hacking to traditional home experimentation, device where one can easily control some of it’s internal conditions like for example temperature or humidity and record corresponding data is needed. Decently priced well established and supported open source version is not available yet. The aim of this project is to establish product which is developed by people and groups interested in the subject and which is shared by the community based on the open source paradigm and importantly continuously developed, so upgrade and update of it's future generations is secured. The long term goal is development of easy to assembly kit’s and complete device which people interested in can buy (from variety of entities, open source).

We are now entering the "official" second year of development so we need to review the first year of our work and based on that set goals, budgeting and concepts for the the second year. We really would like to see more people involved in this project, so just get in touch or pop in so we can talk.
