Test provided by Joe from California:
I think it’s more of a quality Mexican beer with a crisp taste. It’s not my favorite but it’s definitely on of my top 5.
Beer: Bohemia Pilsner
Producer: Cervecería Cuauhtémoc Moctezuma
Originating country: Mexico
Brewing location: Mexico
Bottle size: 12 Oz. = approx. 330 ml
Alcohol by volume: 4.75%
Miscellaneous: Thanks for test, Joe!
Test Kit: GlutenTox Home Kit
Joe tested with a threshold of 20 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 20 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. Even though this test is negative please note it is not a medical advice – see my facts page.
Thanks for the test and pictures Joe!
Formulas for home brewing gluten-free beer can now be found. Many of these include a sweet sorghum syrup as the principal carbohydrate. This is commercially manufactured from sorghum grain to be a malt substitute and contains amino acids and unfermentable sugars needed for yeast nutrition and “mouth feel”.
