Default drosophila food



hello,

lately the food we use started being wet: having water on the surface and being soft when larvae are present, so the flies get stuck. we use a standart recipe containing: 12l water, 1l molasses 670g yeast, 1000g cornmeal, 84g agar and 53ml of propionic acid and 15g of nipagin dissolved in 100ml ethanol.
are there any recomendations to improve our recipe? maybe someone had a similar problem?
