This is a really great batter for anything you wish to deep fry. I've had it on fish and onion rings. You mix the batter and then let it stand for about an hour before using. This batter is not gluten free (I haven't tried to adjust the recipe as yet). I don't think that there would be any Aussie who has not eaten beer batter or wouldn't have their own favourite recipe.

Great beer batter recipe, thanks

Fantastic recipe that just had the perfect consistency to stick to what I was cooking (in this case prawns) while still having a wonderful cripsy and light texture after deep frying. The additional seasonings gave it just that extra edge over regular beer batter as well so it was a great recipe and thanks for sharing Jubes!
