I think the easiest way is to get a large, non-translucent tupperware container and a heating pad. Wash a towel with a little bleach and dry it then put it over the heating pad at the bottom of the bin. Set the pad to low and put your jars in the container. Spray with rubbing alcohol whenever you open to check on them (especially your hands). If the jars feel warm to the touch, the heating pad is too hot. Adjust with more towel thickness or put the heating pad vertical on one side of the container and the jars on the other side. There are much better ways to make an incubator, but in my experience, that's the easiest. A friend of mine keeps the heating pad on top of the container, set to medium.

There he goes, one of God's own prototypes--some kind of high powered mutant never even considered for mass production. Too wierd to live, too rare to die.

http://www.fungifun.org/pf/incubator.htm check that out. Also you can add a air pump to circulate the water and get an evenly spread heat in your chamber.

I work my shitty 9-5 and I pay my taxes, I'm not hurting anybody else. So why do you care what i do in my spare time.
