BitCave is a project focused on local and homemade cheese production created by Guido Cortese, a technician based in Italy who likes bees and plein air. After self-producing beer and bread, it’s now possible to experiment with cheese making. If you don’t have a cellar or basement to age cheese, you can reproduce the optimal conditions to let raw cheese ripen by adjusting seasonal parameters with the help of Arduino. The parameters of temperature and humidity are governed by ripenINO, the brain of BitCave. The airflow is constantly cooled and humidified through the cell, and is corrected in case of microclimatic variations depending on the program you choose.
BitCave and the Ripenino will be at MakerFaire Rome this October.
