    When I raised my fruitflies I used this mix, with great results.

    1 cup mashed potatoes mix, a tablespoon of sugar and a pinch of yeast. Mix the ingredients; add some vinegar (helps to prevents mold) and water. Mix. You might have to add more water or potatoes mix if it is too dry or wet. I myself make it on the dry side.
    I then use 20 oz. soda bottles for the cultures. I put some small holes at the top of the bottle, thumbtack. I cut the bottle in half. Place some of the mix in the bottom of the bottle. Tear a piece of paper towel and place in bottle. Cut a small reverse "v" into the top piece. This is so you can place the top into the bottom section a little. I then duct tape the pieces together again. Use a funnel to place some fruitflies from another culture into the new culture. 1 cup of mix is good for 3 20 oz. bottles.

    The flies themselves don't smell, it's the mix! After a week, you definitely smell it! It's real simple, buy the instant potato mix, powdered baby food, drop in a few grains of yeast and a dab of vinegar. Mix together and dump the flies in.
