From my website:

In a 5 gallon bucket and using a variable-speed drill with a mixing paddle attached, I combine:
16 oz. canola oil
3 oz. ascorbic acid powder (i.e. Vitamin C/Fruit Fresh)
1 lb. protein isolate (either soy or corn will work)
1 lb. food-grade dried egg yoke
10 lbs. pure cane sugar
1 oz. Rusty's Bee Tonic Concentrate
1 oz. Vitamins & Electrolytes Plus
8.5 lbs. brewers yeast
2 +/- quarts of hot water

Combine the ingredients one at a time, mixing with the paddle as you go. Add the water last, using just enough to achieve the consistency for patties. Too much water and they become too soupy to hold together. Too little and they become bricks! I make hamburger-sized patties and place them on the tops of the bars directly above the cluster, usually one at a time to avoid attracting SHBs. These nasty critters like to lay eggs in them and otherwise dirty them, so I keep a very close eye out. If they are just too overwhelming, I'll remove my patties and offer liquid Mega-Bee instead.
