    mariposa13's Note:

    From Beer adds both flavor and texture to this lovely batter. If you make the batter early, it may thicken, in which case it can be thinned with a little more beer or with water. Too thick a batter will make the shrimp soggy, while a batter that is too thin won't form a complete coating.

      these shrimp were delicious, i loved the bite that came from the cayenne pepper. The batter stuck onto the shrimp perfectly and didn't fall apart while frying. I will definitely use this recipe again and again, thank for posting!
