As usual I didn't ready the instructions properly and didn't bring the water to a boil. I have an old and cantankerous oven that I have to work around the idiodsyncrazies of, so bringing the water to a boil was risky. I instead brought the water to a simmer, put the pretzel in and counted to 30 (for both sides). Any longer than 30 would produce something a little scary-squishy looking, like it was going to fall apart. I'm pleased with the results - they browned up beautifully without anything added and the flavour is pretty good. I wouldn't change anything in the recipe, other than maybe rolling out the dough out to a more thin rope and putting fewer on the baking sheet (mine were kind of like buns more than pretzels in shape). Overall, a "keeper".
