Grolsch Kanon Gluten Test

Grolsch is Dutch brand by Bierbrouwerij de Klok, one of the larger Dutch brewers in the Mid east of the Netherlands. Grolsch Kanon is a very alcohol heavy Dutch beer. I tested it because I sometimes drank it before my coeliac diagnosis in 2011. I like it a lot so sometimes i like to drink just one of them. That’s the reason why I tested at 20 ppm: I have no intention in drinking more than one at one time.

Grolsch Kanon is a beer with double fermentation. It is a beer with high level alcohol: 11.6%. The taste is full: sweet and fruity.

I 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. Please don’t take any of the test results as a medical advice – see the facts page.

    That is a serious drink, highest abv I have seen in a beer, not seen it on the market in Australia, have to look in Dan Murphys which are our big liquor stores.

    Thanks again Steffen for continuing your great work.
