Try putting some p-Hydrobenzoic acid in it. How much depends on how much
fly food you are making, but it is a relatively small amount. For example,
when making 6.6 liters of food, we add 15.6 grams of acid mixed with 156ml
of 95% ethanol. This is added after the main portion of the food is boiled
(you don't want to boil the acid off). Check around for specific recipies
you want to use. Hope this was of help. If you want a specific recipie or
anything else, please reply personally. 

Best of luck, 
Mark
