If your goal is only to make a temperature regulated incubator then it would be a lot easier to just use a bi-metal or brass wafer thermostat.
Something you'll also want to watch out for is drying out your bacteria. With the egg incubator I built I continually found it difficult keeping the humidity high; if I ever do that again I'll add a power misting system.
Yeah I know a lot of people put bowls of water in the middle to keep the humidity high. Also I would like to make it controlled by an Arduino running a program that you could say you want the temp between 2 numbers and it would keep it there using a thermometer shield for the Arduino and some form of heating controlled by the Arduino.
