You said 1/2 Water and 1/2 Vinegar.. did you mean cups? Seems like not very much considering the 8 cups of flakes, but worth checking :)

:Well I have tried the FF recipe that has been posted here and other places, and so far (1 week) I have TONS of larva (small ff's). More than I have ever seen with Carolina medium.

:Here is what I used:
:1 Cup Powdered Sugar
:8 Cups potato Flakes
:1/2 Cup Brewers Yeast

:1/2 water, 1/2 Distilled white vinegar, with active yeast sprinkled on top.

:
:So far this medium is looking really nice, and very very cheap. I will just have to wait and see how it does over time with mold and etc. Right now I am making 2 cultures of this, and 2 of Carolina side by side each week. If this new medium keeps up I will just keep running with it after my carolina is gone.

:Just wanted to post my findings maybe it will help someone else out.
