Brewsheets/Brewing page in Breww - adding ingredients and marking "complete"

What’s on the Brewing page?

You can access your batch’s virtual brewsheet using the Brewing button on the batch’s page. Here, you can track the progress through the recipe, add ingredients, take readings and make changes to your recipe.

How do I use the brewsheet to manage ingredient additions?

The virtual brewsheet will follow your recipe’s steps and stages when it opens. (The more built out your recipe is, the more you can get out of the brewsheet).

All ingredients the recipe calls will show with a ‘Add’ action row, like in the screenshot above. If you have chosen not to auto-assign stock when setting up the batch, you will now see an option to add the ingredient manually or ask Breww to auto-assign that ingredient. If you add an ingredient using the blue or green buttons (or auto-assign when starting the batch), this will be taken from your inventory and impact your stock level. You can mark each action as ‘complete’ once you’re happy. This may be after adding exactly what the recipe calls for, more, less, or even nothing at all. It’s simply to confirm that you’ve moved on from this action. Ticking the ‘complete’ box itself has no direct impact on stock levels.
If you do not make an addition and mark that action as complete, a notice will pop up to tell you this has been “Marked as complete without using any stock”, you can ignore this if this was the intention.

The main point of ticking the ‘complete’ box is to help you keep track of where you’ve got to in your recipe steps. For example, you might add part of an ingredient, with the aim of adding the rest later. Keeping up to date in what you’ve completed will help you to manage situations like this. The next recipe step for each batch is also shown on the production dashboard, and is based upon what you’ve ticked off.


  • You may add a different quantity than the recipe calls for, or nothing at all, and still mark the action as complete;
  • Marking a stage as complete, by ticking the ‘complete’ box is for your own reference only and is used to mark how far through the brewing process you are. This does not perform any adjustment to stock in itself;
  • The batch’s main status (e.g. Planned, In-progress, Complete) is not affected by ticking all of your recipe stages. A batch is considered completed when all of the beer has been racked or emptied from vessels.

Useful article thanks,
We are still investigating stock discrepancies and it’s useful to see that stock is not affected by the tick box but we are now looking for way to report on all past batches that have the “Marked as complete without using any stock” option.
Is this possible

Hi Claire,

We’re glad you found this article helpful! There is no report on actions in the brew sheet that have been “Marked as complete without using any stock”, but we have just sent you a private ticket with a one-off data export with this information that should help.
