Sodium Hydroxide ?? for Pretzel Wash

Jimbosox04 | Nov 13, 2006 02:43 PM

I am told that Natrium Hydroxide or as we know it "Sodium Hydroxide" is what the Germans use as a 4% bath for the pretzels that we all know and love. It can be bought at the Apotheke(drugstore) there. Does anyone know where it can be bought here? Only need about 15g to 30g by batch. Any suggestions would be helpful.
