        Hi Zulma,

        You can entirely replace water to beer or soda water. The bubbles from the drink will produce lighter and crunchier texture. This won't require the use of baking powder. Yet, you can still maintain if you prefer for better texture. I hope this helps. I think I can make a recipe of it. lol

        You are very welcome.

        Could I be cheeky and ask if you can use beer for the batter recipe? And if so, how much? I'd like to try it for fish and chips this weekend.
