Curing Olives--Where to buy Lye?

I'm a first time Olive preserver and thought I'd try both brine and lye preservation techniques this year to experiment. Can't seem to locate appropriate stores in the East Bay (preferably close to El Sobrante) where I can buy Lye in small quantities. Would appreciate any suggestions for purchase, as well as recommendations on favorite recipes.

Thanks! Jim.
