  • Raw Material inventory management

    what are you guys doing for managing raw materials? looking for a way that my staff can have one digital source to manage all raw materials that I can look at and know when I need to reorder things. Is there an app? are you using a google docs spread sheet? What are you guys doing?

    Depends on how much you want to spend on this kind of "management" application. We use a spreadsheet which is updated with every brew and delivery and tracks current inventory. Can be as simple or complex as you'd like to make it.

      As above. For instance, for our bulk grain, we use an MS Excel spread sheet that we enter our delivered grain into. Our mashbills are also XL spreadsheets, and export the amounts of grain used to the inventory SS, where it is subtracted from the amount delivered for a running total. It works, almost all the time.

        Same here. Simple spreadsheet that factors in quantity on hand based on what I've brewed and also figures in planned brews for an order quantity

            We are using "Dolibarr", an open source ERP software. It handles inventory and much more.
            It can be integrated into POS systems, online purchasing, and can be used on a smart phone. There are many modules available to customize the software. It does require a bit of setup with MySQL and Php.

            It's FREE...

                I'll pull together a cleaned up version of ours with some notes. We use google sheets for ours so free and easy to access from multiple computers.

                      inventory templates?

                      I'd like to see your tracking spreadsheets as well.
                      Cheers

                        My spreadsheet is in Google Sheets which means it isn't easy to just upload here. I'm working on cleaning it up a little and adding some notes on intended use and then I'll save a snapshot of it and give folks access. Don't know an easy way without just sharing out to individual emails (which could get tedious fast).

                        It's really a simple spreadsheet with ingredients listed in the first column; starting inventory, brew days and deliveries in subsequent columns (grouped by section for incoming and outgoing). It's a simple matter to calculate total ingredient used or total ingredient delivered. It's also a simple matter to then calculate on hand inventory (starting inventory + delivered - used). I've thrown in some columns for physical counts as an auditing mechanism as well as a section for planning (enter what you need for a given recipe and how many times you'd like to brew it and it will compare that your on hand inventory).

                        It's a bit chaotic with several redundant columns but it works.

                        If anyone can point out a good way to share from Google, let me know.

                          We use BeerSmith for inventory tracking. They have a button to remove ingredients from inventory. Works well for us currently and we are a 3 bbl system and do double batches.
