You may want to also take a look at 
ethylene glycol which offers the same protection,
but remains at a very low viscosity.
Both are used at 25-50% 

Make sure you get really CLEAN stuff - both
products are most often sold in a commercial/technical
grade which may or may not kill your enzyme/protein.

Some vendors have purified versions.
