I'm sorry I couldn't rate this recipe higher but it just didn't work for me. The batter had very little flavor, even though I used a very strong flavored beer, added more salt than called for, and threw in some cajun seasoning. The wedges were soggy and did not crisp up even though they turned brown. The recipe also wasn't clear as to whether to cool the potatoes before battering and frying so maybe that affected the outcome. Sorry, but I just didn't care for this recipe.
