Good, but I was looking for a thicker coating.

So far the best beer batter I have tried. I also added a tat more flour and I increased the salt to 1tsp. This batter stays crisp even when cold and when reheated. Excellent recie!

I halved this recipe to coat 8 ounces of quartered mushrooms. Fried them up with the oil at 320°F and they were better than the ones I get out at restaurants. Perfect batter (I only had to add a bit more flour than called for, but the tip on consistency was a big help in guiding me), and I will definitely try it next time I am frying fish.
