I'm not sure what you are going after with the calcium carbonate, I've
been out of town for a while and have just read a week's worth of APDs
in one sitting.  

You can get food grade calcium hydroxide in the canning and pickling
supplies at your local grocery store.  It is called "pickling lime".  I
*think* it is more soluble than calcium carbonate, but you'd have to be
more careful about its affect on the pH.
