Has anyone experimented with adding antibiotics to the substrate? I know that sporeworks sells something but I'm not sure what it is exactly. A friend has a bunch of boxes of 50cc bottles of liquid Gentamicin. Is there a formula for calcuating the effective dose for use in agar or substrate? Any data would be much appreciated!

The thin line between genius and insanity is known only by those who cross it.

50-100mg/L is the recommended concentration of gentamicin sulfate.

I use gentamicin sulfate in most of my agar solutions, but I try to limit its use as much as possible. I am not an expert, but I would not recommend using it with a substrate. I would be worried about growing super-bacteria that becomes immune to the antibiotic. Instead, I would improve my sterilization techniques.

Just another spore in the wind.
