If you use both your own kegs and non-returnable containers, then you first need to decide if you’d like to sell these as different products to your customers or as the same product (you can still choose which container to give the customer at the point of delivery if you use a single product).
For the purposes of understanding Breww’s terminology, examples of non-returnable containers may include E-Kegs, KegStar, PolyKeg, KeyKeg & others. In this article, we’ll use KegStar as an example of a non-returnable container to aid with explaining the process. Breww is not affiliated with any of these brands in any way.
- If you wish to sell as different products - in this case you’ll need to create two container types, one for your own kegs and one for the non-returnable, e.g. “30L Keg” and “30L KegStar” and then create a second product which points to the beer and the “30L KegStar” container type.
- If you wish to sell as the same product - this is simpler as you need just the one keg container type and one product for the beer in that container. Breww will still know how many of this product you have in rented kegs and for your own kegs will know the exact keg numbers which are filled with the beer.
Once you’ve got the 1 or 2 products created (as per how you’d like it to work), you simply need to rack into them from the batch.
- First go to the batch.
- Click “Actions” in the top-right.
- Choose “Rack (package)”.
- Select the vessel and relevant product (make sure to choose the product that points to the “30L KegStar”, if you go with the option to sell these as separate products).
- On the next screen, you’ll have the option to enter or scan containers, but for non-returnable containers, this should be skipped completely.
- On that same screen, there will be an input box labelled “Non-returnable quantity”. Here you simply enter how many non-returnables you have filled.
- Continue to fill in the form and complete the process.
