    Thanks L, it IS difficult to master this one, one thing I've always done is to use a candy thermometer whilst frying. Keeping that temperature up is all-important, it seems. And you know how some recipes for frying things call for dredging in club soda? I use beer in mine. I think that having something carbonated in the mix helps sometimes as a binder. Great post, and always one of my fav's.
