Title: Making Brezels
Post by: Kaiser on December 17, 2009, 03:14:22 PM
Last weekend, when I made a basked of Brezels and lye rolls, I took pictures to illustrate the process. I finally finished the write-up: http://braukaiser.com/wiki/index.php?title=Brezels_and_other_Laugengeb%C3%A4ck

Enjoy,
Kai

Looks great Kai.  I'll have to give that a try sometime.  I think the rolls would be great with some bratwurst, emmentaler cheese, and mustard.

Anyone know a good place to buy lye?  I want to do some of these fun rolls...but don't know where to find lye.  I'm sure shipping is brutal...so maybe something local in the Chicago-area...

I found this:

http://www.boyercorporation.com/

Is this appropriate for making food?  This is really close to my house, so hopefully this is ok!

I bought mine here after I couldn't find it in local stores. Keep in mind that driving around to find it may cost more in gas than having it shipped. I oftentimes forget about that fact when buying a $5 item and paying $6 for shipping.

PS: I just posted in your hardness thread that you may have added lye instead of lime. I guess this answers that question.

Good point Kai.  I remember you posting something about buying food grade lye at the NB forum a few months back.  What site did you buy this from?

Looks like I forgot to post the link. It was still in one of my browser tabs: http://www.amazon.com/Grade-Sodium-Hydroxide-Micro-Beads/dp/B001EDBEZM
