I found both 100% lye drain cleaner (~$2.50ea) and HEET Methanol (~$1.25ea)
I think they also carry isoHEET for around the same price so you could practice titration...

now I'm not sure if you have to buy in bulk or not... there website was unclear as to whether you could simply buy one bottle of each or buy 6 or 12 packs

I'm stopping by there tomorrow to check it out I'll post again when I get back

I bought a couple 1 pound bottles of lye from a local Ace in Tucson last week, cost $5.25 a pound plus tax.

I use this to clean veg crud out of my steel transport and storage tanks, add a pound of lye to a couple inches of water and move the tank around every other day, a week later you have a nice clean tank. (DO NOT do this with an aluminum tank)

I guess I better look into that market, my selling it to homebrewers for $2.25 a pound (or less in quantity) pales by comparison.
