"The Sulphate Reducing Bacteria" by John Postgate has recipes for several

>From ASM's "Manual of Methods for General Bacteriology (1981)

yeast extract           1.0g
sodium lactate        4.0g
NH4Cl                     0.5g
K2HPO4                 1.0g
MgSO4 . 7H2O      0.2g
CaCl2 . 2H2O        0.1g
FeSO4 . 7H2O       0.1g
Na2SO4                 0.5 g

(NaCl, for marine organisms  20-30g)

Oddly they don't give a volume but per litre would seem to be appropriate.
