Breww allows the inclusion of utility and other general costs such as water, electricity and 3rd party packaging fees against a batch. Rather than needing to create these as stock items, they can be added as non-stock item costs. Simply apply these costs to a batch with a name and value under the Utility/other costs tab on a batch.
Batch costs can also be automatically added into a batch ahould you wish to always include a certain cost item. This functionality can be set up in Settings > Production settings > Automatic batch costs settings .
