In case anyone was interested the Guinness beer battered halibut was the unanimous winner over the Smithwicks beer battered halibut.
Their appearance was interesting the Guinness batter made it look more golden brown due to the dark beer in the batter, so even though they were cooked for the same amount of time, the when you saw the finished product, the Guinness looked more.... i dunno, dark, and crispy? .....
Anywho.... I'll have to think of some more stuff to deep-fry, I still have lots of oil in the deep-fryer, and lots of beer to make batter with.
Deep-fried... salt-water taffy?
