What do you use as culture medium for microworms?

I use unbreached corn meal, cooked, and sprinkled lightly with
Fleischman's dry active yeast. Generally the culture has NO odor, but
sometimes a slight fruity (or yeasty) odor develops. Not unpleasant.

It is possible, that the odor is a function of culture medium or, it
could be, of the species of microworms. In any case. my cultures do not
have an unpleasant smell.
