1/4 tsp pepper

How to:

1. Heat cooking oil in deep pan or fryer to 375 degrees

2. Pour beer straight into bowl and let it go flat, then mix with beaten eggs

3. Add dry ingredients and mix well

4. If necessary, adjust batter to about the thickness of heavy cream by adding a little more beer or flour
