Can you freeze this mix?
since i don't need to culture a lot of flies i was wondering if i can freeze the leftovers of this mix for later use. Would freezing it decrease the efficacy of it or mess with the yeast? Or should i just half the recipe?
The Power Mix
"In a pot bring the following to a boil.
2 cups water
2 cups vinegar
1/8th cup Dark molasses
1/2 can of grape juice concentrate
2-3 overripe mushed up bananas
After bringing this mixture to a boil, add the dry material
1/2 cup malt of meal
2/3 cup potato flakes
1/3 cup Brewers Yeast (the key ingredient)
Place about 2 inches of medium in each qt size jar, and sprinkle maybe an 1/8th teaspoon of activated yeast on the top.* A day later, 20-30 flies are added."
