I seem to remember an article where potassium nitrate was included in the 
medium as an electron recipient thus allowing the E. coli to grow fairly 
robustly anaerobically (although slower eg. 48h instead of overnight).  As 
long as you are not in a hurry this might save you from scrounging 
equipment or gas permeable covers.
