The last BYO mentioned this additive to prevent lacto infection. Has anyone tried this? Comments?

The other interesting thing was there was no mention of where to purchase it.

Hmmm, I haven't seen the article yet (my copy of BYO takes a while to get to me), but I know lysozyme is used in winemaking and cheesemaking. Here is one source: http://www.beer-wine.com/category_page.asp?categoryID=119&sectionID=2

If you live in farm/ranch country I would think it might be possible to obtain veterinary lysozyme, which is used as an antibiotic to treat stomach infections in cows, for example.

Winemakers have used lysozyme for awhile now. If your homebrew shop also has a winemaking section, check there.
