It’s Oktoberfest time in Germany and during this time a special beer is available which is bottom-fermented, contains strong alcohol but has a very smooth taste. Just don’t drink too much of it to avoid a headache. But what about the level of gluten? There are previous studies which show very low gluten for two tested Oktoberfest beers. According to a research from November 2009 done by the National Food Agency of Sweden the gluten content is as follows:
Hofbräu Oktoberfestbier – 26 ppm
Löwenbräu Oktoberfestbier – 21 ppm
I will test both again. Stay tuned for the test results.
