lye vs. baking soda for homemade pretzels

momskitchen | Jun 6, 200811:17 AM

I want to make homemade pretzels, and my recipe calls for the lye bath. My beloved Alton Brown suggests baking soda instead. I like this idea, because I have it on hand. Does it work as well? Where does one buy lye? At the hardware store?
