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.
Always good to see more of these added to the list. I recently tried Krombacher Pils and it’s added to my list of regular beers now (have actually turned some friends on to it as well).
Can’t seem to find the Hell variety here in Ontario/Canada, but I’ll keep an eye out!
