You boil it with the yeast in ?

:I started raising heidi's about 1 and a half months ago and this recipe has yeilded more flies than I bargained for!

:
:1/4 cup molasses
:1/4 cup baker's yeast
:3/4 cup apple juice
:1 tablespoon of herptivite
:2:1 ratio of vinegar to water
:1 to 1 and a half cups potato flakes (enough to get a good consistancy)
:I boil it all for about 1-2 minutes
:then I put a little dash of baker's yeast on top.

:I have 2 cobalt's and 3 azures and my three cultures produce more flies than I can use! Good Luck!

::Hey,
::sorry to ask this. I know there were many debates and posts about various types of media. Some were OK and some sucked. I've been recently experimenting with different types of concoctions myself, but I haven't gotten the result that I've been looking for. I don't get very high yields out of my hydei cultures. I'd like to hear your proven "winning" hydei specific recipes.

::I know Ed's FM Inc recipe works great, but it's very expensive in the long run. I'd like to have a home made cost effective alternative.

::Thanks
