"As long as there is a beer in the house this is a quick and easy recipe without any fancy ingredients. You can find all the ingredients in a standard kitchen! This batter is great for deep frying white fish. Fresh lake perch and walleye are especially tasty in this beer batter."

Great recipie! If you dredge whatever you're frying in flour before you put it in the batter, it helps the batter stick more and makes it thicker.

Simple, tasty batter. I added just a little salt to enhance flavor. I use it to make fried shrimp with onion rings on the side. It helps to dust your fish, shrimp, etc. with flour first, then dipping in the batter. Some people have said this batter is too thin; add a little more flour if you like, but note that a heavy batter will fry up very dense and retain a lot of oil.

This was an excellent recipe, except for the fact that the fish got very soggy when it cooled. My oil was plenty hot, I dried the fish first (as someone else had suggested) and drained them real good. Does anyone have a suggestion on how to keep the fish crispy?
