Pilsner beer style is the most common in Germany. Around 50% of the beer lovers prefer Pilsner rather than the many other styles like Weissbier (wheat beer), Lager, Helles etc.
Krombacher is the second best selling beer in Germany. It is actually quite good, nothing special but not bad at all. Due to smart marketing e.g. in football, handball, hockey and basketball it is one of the few brands which grow.
Beer: Krombacher Pils

Bottle size: 0.5 l = approx. 16 Oz.
Alcohol by volume: 4.8%

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. Again please don’t take any of my test results as a medical advice – please see my facts page.
