Add a New Batch to the Cellar

Updated: Jul 24

Once some (or all) of your beer is kegged, it's time to add the kegs to your cellar inventory. Before you continue, it's important to know how Keg Punk organizes everything.

Cellar Organization

Keg Punk organizes your cellar using three important terms:

  • Beer. This is the recipe.

  • Batch. This is an iteration of a beer. You assign a custom batch ID to each batch.

  • Sub-Batch. This is an individual kegging run of a batch.


What is a sub-batch?

A sub-batch is an individual kegging run from a batch. In the image below, Batch B is kegged into two different types of kegs. Each group of kegs is a sub-batch. If you don't keg the entire batch at once, you can come back later and create sub-batches as you keg more from the batch.


Each sub-batch is assigned a Sub-Batch ID in parenthesis.


Sub-Batch Name = Beer Name + Batch ID + (Sub-Batch ID)

Batch Info section


New Batch of

Enter the name of the beer, or select a previously saved one from the drop-down. If you select a previously saved beer, you can click the "Recall" button to automatically recall info from the last batch of this beer.


Batch ID

Enter a unique Batch ID. This can be anything you want as long as the Beer/Batch ID combo has not been used before.


Brew Date

When was the batch brewed? If you don't know the brew date, set the brew date equal to the Input Date.


Input Date

The input date is the day you put the kegs in the cooler. For a brewery this would be the day you keg the batch. For a bar, this would be the day you get an order of kegs from the distributor.


Style

Enter a custom style or select from the drop-down. Custom styles will be saved to memory after the batch is saved.


ABV

Enter the ABV of the batch.

2 - Kegging

Kegging section

In the Kegging section, select each type of keg you've used and how many of each. Each type of keg you check will create it's own unique Sub-Batch.


If you are not kegging the entire batch all at once, don't worry - you can go in later and add a new sub-batch once you've kegged more of the batch.

5 - Color

Color

The Color section lets you assign a custom or SRM color to your batch. The beer color can be seen by bartenders on the Taproom screen and by your patrons on the tap list display if you have one set up.


If you don't want to display the beer color, you can select "None". In the Options tab, you can also set "Show Color" to No.

6 - Saving

Once you click Save, the batch (the combination of all sub-batches) will be added to your Cellar inventory!


You can see below that the batch was divided into two unique Sub-Batches, each with it's own Sub-Batch ID.
