E.coli growth in minimal medium

Hi there,
We have cloned a gene into the expression vector/host system 
We grow the cells in LB and get high amounts of overexpressed
protein in inclusion bodies.
We want to replace LB with a minimal medium like M9.
I understand the medium should be supplemented with amino acids
and vitamins, etc.
Could someone send me a protocol and/or a reference for this?
Any comments are welcome.
