In a medium bowl combine 3 cups all-purpose flour, 4 1/2 tsp. baking powder, and 3/4 tsp. salt. **From our test kitchen: During our testing we found that we preferred a beer bread prepared with a brown ale beer. Other good choices include lagers and crisp hard ciders. We do not recommend using IPAs or stouts for this recipe.
