The footnotes stated you could use beer in place of the club soda and that is exactly what I did. Made as written and this worked good for me. I was amazed at how brown such a little bit of soy ...

I did not use the soda water but substituted beer as one reviewer suggested. Flavor was great as state but made the batter too heavy even though thebeer was ice cold. Will use straight water ...

nice basic batter recipe. tweak to your hearts content
