The very first batch has been made: apple banana coconut sorbet with chocolate oat cookie chunks and roasted soybeans. It took way too long to get a good consistency because of the bad insulation but tasted way too good to not continue with the project. Next step will be a waterproof case with proper insulation and a worm gear drive for the paddle. Then motorizing it with a window wiper motor, a PWM or BAM driver and a microcontroller which monitors everything. I plan to measure the current of the motor and establish a correlation of ice cream consistency and current consumption. With a small LUT (Look Up Table) the controller can then achieve a set consistency and hold it – from slush ice over sorbet up to heavy gelato.
