Has anybody tried or does anyone have a recipe for dry (yes DRY) D. 
melanogaster food media ? 

I plan to expose my flies  to a toxicant which I plan to administer 
through a wet piece of cotton. However, in order for them to forcibly drink 
the toxicant from the cotton, it would be better if the media would be dry.

If that is not possible, does anyone have a recipe for a protein-rich 
"broth" which I can spike with my toxicant and feed my flies by wetting 
the cotton plug during the duration of exposure?
