[Tastebridge] Automated Kombucha Brewing Project: Getting together a team

Hi Rameen and all,
Sounds great! Sorry I have missed the first email. 

I'm far away in Korea now but I'm certainly interested at least in a remote collaboration. I'm way  behind on making the experimental incubator reality but I'm progressing and with the 29c3 coming I'm getting more motivation which could be also good for the automated kombucha brewing project.

Recently I've been switching for continuous kombucha brewing which should be I think more agreeing with the automated system but let's be honest I had some issues there, most likely because of high temperatures in Seoul during the summer so I need to start again.

Anyway please keep posting to the list so I can keep up to date and if you create some wiki I'll  be certainly checking on it.

Best of luck with the project,

Frantisek Algoldor Apfelbeck

We are having a preliminary meeting on Wednesday the 24th at 7:00pm at Noisebridge! This is not a set date-- I just want to have a meeting time to get things started. If you're interested and didn't see the e-mail before, feel free to add your name to the doodle: http://doodle.com/ibqptvzfm7cepgpc
The best way to contact me is by phone, so feel free to leave your number or ask for mine off list so we can talk about scheduling or ideas or whatever!

Hi! I'm one of the founding members of Tastebridge and I'm looking to put together a team of people to help create a sustained brewing automation. I plan to incorporate the award-winning BioBoard, which also needs a little bit of work done on it. So far I know at least 2 other very nice individuals to help-- one who helped develop the BioBoard and another founding member of Tastebridge.
