We really enjoyed these! The dough was hard to work with... had to have the boyfriend do the heavy kneading as I am wimpy and the dough is quite tough. Next time may used the kneader function in my bread machine instead. Also, rolling the dough into ropes was a bad idea for us: it made it hard for us to shape them into cohesive round bagels. We ended up just cutting the remainder of the whole big loaf into 9 sized cubes, shaping that into a ball (instead of rolling it into a rope and then shaping it into balls), and poked the holes in the middle. Otherwise, yum! Also... if you haven't figured out how to steam bake, we used our cast iron skillet, let it sit in the hot oven on the lowest rack while it was warming up, then right as we put the bagels in we threw some water into the skillet and shut the door as fast as we could to keep the steam in. Worked fine for us!
