I have never heard of this and I imagine the alcohol would kill the mycelium, but don't quote me on this.

That's not true. Peroxide doesn't protect against living molds or fungi, only spores. As long as everything is sterile from the start peroxide only protects it from airborne contaminants. I am pretty sure that alcohol wouldn't work.
