Depending on how your brewery operates, you may not keg an entire batch all at once. For example, you may keg half of the batch one day, and the other half on the next day. Keg Punk allows you to create new Sub-Batches for each kegging run. Before you continue, it's important to know how Keg Punk organizes everything.
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)
