Distillation update

Making the alcohol

An update on the distillation project, this time on making the mash, i.e. the liquid that goes into the still to be distilled.

Distillation 101

Using physics to extract smells

Throughout the fall and winter, I will be distilling some of the liquids that are produced in and around Mediamatic. Distillation is a technique, mostly used in chemistry, to separate components of a liquid mixture. This separation is based on the different volatilities of the components, i.e. ho...

  • Running the still for the first time. - 

    During the distillation process the temperature of the vapours will slowly climb to 100 °C. The thermometer at the top of the column helps with monitoring the vapour temperature and tells you how far in the process you are.

What has the Myco-Brew team been up to recently? With the newly refurbished Clean Lab, the Myco-Brew project is back in action! Separate spaces within the same building have been specially designed to fit equally around the process of...

Proposal Textile mycelium

How can we use mycelium to improve textiles?

The insulating and moisture-absorbing properties of mycelium are very good. A lot of textiles are lacking these. That is why want to integrate the mycelium into textiles. Could we make a fine flexible textile piece that insulates drafty places or functions as a moisture absorber?
