Pickling Lime to make Kalkwasser

Years ago people used pickling lime to make kalkwasser, is that still done today? I gave my old reef setup to my brother and he remembered my using that and was wondering if it was still considered ok. I'm not sure what to tell him. Any thoughts?

Yes, it's fine to use. 2 teaspoons per gallon of freshwater makes a saturated kalk solution.
