Bavarian Style Pretzel

Yield: 8 pretzelspretzel-wall

1 1/2 cups warm (water
1 T barley Malt Syrup
2 teaspoons kosher salt
1 package active dry yeast
4 ½ c all-purpose flour
3 T melted butter
Vegetable oil, for pan
10 cups water
½ cup food grade lye

Make the dough
Combine the water, syrup and kosher salt in the bowl of a stand mixer and sprinkle the yeast on top. Allow to sit for 5 minutes or until the mixture begins to foam.

Return the dough to the bowl, cover with plastic wrap and sit in a warm place for approximately 50 to 55 minutes or until the dough has doubled in size.

Shape the Dough
Divide dough into 8 equal pieces, roll out each piece into a rope about 22 inches long. Lift both ends, twist them around each other once, then bring ends back and press them on either side to make a traditional shape pretzel. Transfer shaped pretzels to an ungreased baking sheet. Let rest at room temperature for 30 minutes, then refrigerate at least one hour or overnight.

Dip in Lye bath and bake
Heat oven to 425 degrees. In a deep bowl, wearing rubber or latex gloves, make a solution of 1/2 cup lye and 10 cups water. Dip each pretzel in solution, turning it over for 10 to 15 seconds and place back on baking sheet. Sprinkle pretzels with salt (or toppings of your choice , garlic parsley , cheddar cheese, everything seasoning ) and bake about 15 minutes or until deep brown. Remove to a rack and serve warm.
