Ingredients

How to make it

  • Place warm water in a lg. bowl, sprinkle with yeast. Let stand 5 min.
  • Add sugar, oil, 3/4 tsp. salt, ale and enough flour to make soft dough. (add 3 3/4 cups first, then see if you need more. You can always incorporate more while kneading)
  • Place dough on lightly floured surface. Knead 6-8 min., or until smooth and elastic. Place in lightly greased bowl and cover. Let rise in WARM place until doubled in bulk, about 60 min.
  • Punch dough down. Divide into 12 pieces.
  • Roll each piece into a rope, about 20 inches long. If you want soft pretzels, make your rope thicker; if you prefer them lightly crunchy, make your rope really thin. Both types of pretzels on the pictures above were made from the same dough.
  • Shape rope into pretzels.
  • Combine hot water and soda in a shallow container or a pie plate. Dip pretzels into solution and place on lightly greased baking sheet. Take care not to burn your hands.
  • Cover pretzels loosely and let rise in WARM place for 15-20 min.
  • Brush with beaten egg. Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 tsp. salt. (use more salt if desired). Then sprinkle with parmesan cheese.
  • Bake in preheated 425F oven until lightly golden, about 15 min.
  • Brush with melted butter. Serve with mustard.
  • Pretzels can be kept in a ziplock or air tight plastic container without refrigiration for several days. Just warm up in the microwave for a few seconds.

    nice, the beer flavour comes through more in the smell than the taste.
