This is a great beer batter recipe. I love fish & chips. Serve with a little cocktail and/or tarter sauce and malt vinegar for dipping and enjoy! I use this for mostly fish. My favorites in particular are cod, flounder and ocean perch but you can use this batter for anything such as mushrooms, pickles, cheese sticks, chicken, etc.
