Thanks for requesting me .

The test is positive after consuming several drinks or more for several days.

It can be positive for up to 3 weeks.

So it depends on your level of consumption.

You are near the non detection period.

It really depends on how many days you drank in a row.

4 or more is likely to be detected.

OK, so that is an initial answer….
