Default Made Up My Own FF Recipe, Well Almost

I used a recipe here and it is working great.

8 cups of potato flakes
1 cup powdered sugar
1 cup brewers yeast (from Josh)
4 teaspoons methelparaben (mold inhibitorfrom Josh)
8 heaping tablespoons of cinnamon

I started a culture with it last Saturday and here is it, the temps have only been in the mid to low 70's, if it was around 78 to 80 it would have been further along

Looks good, here's a couple pointers and questions!

=Instead of Methelparaben I prefer vinegar as a cheaper route, although MP is more reliable and longer lasting
=If you have frogs now, consider making a few cultures at once; that way you have extras when there is a crash of some sort

A couple questions
=What's the cinnamon for?
=Unfortunately I can't see your picture, can you try uploading it again?

Everyone says Josh's media smells like cinnamon as well as the media I have purchased from him also(its great) so I thew some in lol lol. As far as the Methelparaben I got a pound for 10.00 and at 4 teaspoons per mix it will last me a long time and I dont have to deal with the vinegar stink???

yes joshes media does smell like cinnomin, i think it to hide the nasty smell of maggots and decaying food they eat. thats just my opiion though he could tell ya more. i like his media it does very well, i have also used amandas from AZDR as well as Cindys from Vivarium concepts. i had the best producing flys from Cindys, but there is nothing wrong with any i have tried just got a bit more from hers. i don't know why. i would like to make my own too, and i may give it a shot.
