Batch tracing and ingredient recalls

We take ingredient and beer batch traceability seriously in Breww and as such, we offer two useful tools for tracing where any raw materials may have been used in addition to seeing where batches of packaged beer have been sold.

Where has a batch of beer been delivered to?

If for any reason, you need to investigate the distribution of a specific batch of beer, you can do so using the Batch distribution report. This is found in
ReportingPre-built production & inventory reportsBatch distribution.

Ingredient recalls

If you need to recall a specific stock item, such as a batch of hops or yeast, you can do so with the Ingredient recall tool. Simply navigate to Stock itemsTools & optionsIngredient recall then choose the stock item and enter the applicable batch code.

The report will detail which batches of beer this ingredient batch has been used in, in addition to any racked products. It will also show any customers that have received packaged beer from one of these batches, alongside some useful details to allow for a recall (such as the customer’s address and phone number).

A post was merged into an existing topic: Allow exporting ingredient recall report to CSV or Excel

would “batch distribution” not be better located in production alongside the batch that is under investigation? i.e. batch 275, where has it been distributed to?

That’s a great suggestion, David, thank you. We’ve added a link through to this report from the Reports menu on a batch now :+1:

Hi, I tried using the ingredient recall tool and tried to select a specific batch of empty cans but these don’t appear in the list. It would be very useful to be able to also track specific batches of containers within this tool. Could you advise how to trace a specific batch of containers from PO of the empty container down to customers details?

Hey Ariele, this report was only enabled for ingredients, but there’s no good reason why this was limited to ingredients and couldn’t be used for other stock items, such as packaging.

We’ve removed this restriction now, so you should be able to use it on a specific batch of empty cans now :tada:
