Bitter Batter

Researchers in New Zealand have found that an old English recipe for using beer in fish batter can reduce fat absorption by up to 40%! The recipe uses one cup of beer for each cup of flour, and Professor Charmian O` conner and her team from Auckland University found that, not only did the batter absorb less fat, but the fish remained more moist.

Itwas found that cooking the fish in beer batter at 180/c {356/f} for six minutes, followed by banging the basket and then draining for at least 20 seconds gave the best fat lowering results.

Rotherham bottles reach a high level
As a company which has found favour with a number of independent brewers, notably Batemans and Brakspears, Rotherham based glass manufacturers Beatson Clark have also obtained the contract for supplying bottles for the recently introduced high level Strong Brown ale from the Federation Brewery. This is the first bottle desiggned especially for the Federation Brewery. The tall flint blass bottle has a modern look, designed to be noticed.Although the brown ale is not bottle conditioned, it does have bags of flavour.

Six pints a night drinker gets rsi
Adrinker has been diagnosed with repetitive strain injury-from lifting six pints of beer a night.Student Matt Royle, 26, developed the condition, normally associated with computer keyboard work and racket sports, by downing pints at his local. Now Mr Royle can barely hold a glass inhis drinking hand.Doctors have told him to wear a slip on wrist support, more commonly used by athletes. The doctor`s son, who is studuing psychology at Mancheater University, wears the support when he goes to the pub and is hoping to be in peak condition for the world cup. Mr Royle, who drinks six pints of bitter four nights a week, said: ''When I first wore the wrist band to the pub I covered it up with a long jumper and it was a source of great amusement. But it has worked- it feels like someone`s gripping your arm.''
