Seafood Batter

This batter is made to dip the prepared soft-shell green crabs in and deep fry. However, you can use it for other seafood. For a thinner batter add more beer and a thicker batter use less. This batter should be enough for about 35-40 green crabs. I like adding turmeric but you can omit it. I use an IPA beer because it was available but also for the flavor.
