You should contact a company called BioServe. They make a wide range of
diets for this purpose. The diets come in a powder form that you weigh out
and mix with the desired water/alcohol mixture. I don't have their
phone/address with me but if you can't track them down send me e-mail and
I will look it up. BioServe usually has a display at the major meetings
(e.g., Soc. Neuroscience) so you can also get their address/phone from the
abstract volumes.
