Learn how to make beer batter with this easy recipe. The first rule of beer batter: It’s not complicated; it should only contain beer and self-rising flour. The second rule of beer batter: The beer should be cold. The third rule of beer batter: don’t sift the flour, and don’t over-whisk it — a few lumps make for a better texture. The fourth (and most crucial!) rule of beer batter: choose the correct beer according to what you will cook. As any ingredient ranges in texture and taste, so does beer.
