The most important thing to remember is to use ice-cold beer or soda water. The carbonation in the liquid makes the batter puffy and the shock of the cold batter when it hits the hot oil makes it really crispy.

Your choice of which beer to use is down to personal taste. Personally, my favourite tipple is a nice cold pint of Abbott or Old Speckled Hen. But that’s for drinking not making crispy fish batter!

I find lagers make the best batter being quite gassy and slightly sweet. Have a look at this article from Nick Hines to find out more.
