Default Pretzel Beer?

I had a dream last night that I stripped the salt off pretzels and steeped them with the grains and it made an absolutely awesome pretzel beer.

What do you all think? Doable?

Probably use hard pretzels but call it like "Bavarian Pretzel Bock" or Ale or Amber or whatever type of beer the recipe ends up being.

Firstly, you can buy unsalted pretzels. Secondly, you may really stick your sparge. Thirdly, Sourdough all the way!

No I didn't. There seemed little interest in it and then I actually forgot about it until I just saw it bumped.

Now I am kind of re-interested though... lol

Sounds really interesting to me. I'd probably use soft pretzels instead, though.

Since they were baked, no fermentables will be there, but it might end up being a good thought for a wheat beer recipe. Sub 1/2 the wheat with an equal weight in pretzels.

hummmm....I'm seeing the conversation now
Wife.. " hey,where is that bag of pretzels I just bought?"
Me...." umm....( looking at the mash tun)"
her...." did you........really?" shaking head walking away
Me...." well, technically I will be eating them in three weeks or so"
Me..." Honey....."
Me..." honey....."
Me to dog... " come on boy, lets go get a beer"
Dog...." sounds good, thought she'd never leave"

There are a couple of breweries here who have made beers that taste like pretzels. Solera made one called "Pretzel Logic" for the Portland Cheers to Belgian Beers festival, and The Commons made on called "Myrtle" that worked as well. It can be done without pretzels in the mash too. (Both were sours)
