“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.”
