Brine Shrimp Colony

Has anyone ever tried to raise their own brine shrimp for their betta's and if so how hard would it be? I remember having them as pets back as a kid when they were called seas monkeys. I am very interested in raising these guys and having them as live food for Aquarius and whatever other betta's I may get later on. Can you keep a good healthy colony going for a few years if you don't harvest too many babies and adults for fish food?

What sort of gear would you say I would need?

I would google it... I haven't heard of anyone here growing brine shrimp to adult for food.
I think it would be too time consuming and labor intensive considering how many variety of foods are out there.
