After I tested the Krombacher Pils back in May I now test their lager beer called Hell which means bright. Krombacher Hell is a decent lager, quaffable, malty and hoppy. I actually like it and prefer it to their Pils. And according to my knowledge this is the first time it gets tested on its gluten level.
Beer: Krombacher Hell
Producer: Krombacher Brauerei
Originating country: Germany
Brewing location: Germany
Bottle size: 0.5 l = approx. 16 Oz.
Alcohol by volume: 5.0%
Ingredients: water, barley malt, hops, hops extract
Test Kit: GlutenTox Home Kit
I tested with a threshold of 5 ppm. The limit of detection depends on the number of drops taken from the extraction solution, please find some more information here.
Test result: There is no indication of the presence of gluten above 5 ppm. According to the instructions there should appear a clearly visible red test line on the right of the test area ( T ) to indicate the presence of gluten. The blue line on the left test area ( C ) is a control line and indicates that the extract/sample is suitable, the test has been performed correctly and all reagents are active. Please don’t take any of my test results as a medical advice – see my facts page.
