How do I undo or correct a mistake made on a batch?

If you’ve made an error related to a batch, for example:

  • I’ve started my batch too early
  • I’ve started a batch using the wrong recipe
  • I’ve racked the wrong amount of product from my batch
  • I’ve transferred some beer to the wrong container
  • I’ve transferred the wrong amount of beer from my batch

The first thing to check would be to see if you can undo the incorrect action.

If you go to the batch in question, click on the Actions tab near the bottom, and you’ll see a list of actions performed against that batch. You can undo actions by clicking the undo button, on the Action line.

Some actions on batches can’t be undone, for example, if that action has actions following on from it (“child actions”). You also won’t be able to undo a racking if some of the racked products have already been sold.

If you need to undo multiple actions, you might need to do so in reverse chronological order (most recent first).

Just need to change the date/time of a batch action?

If you just need to change the date/time of an action, you don’t need to undo the whole action. You can go to the “Actions” tab on the batch and use the edit button (with the pencil icon) next to the action to change the date/time.

If you need to change the date/time on multiple actions, you will need to preserve the order in which they were done, so you may need to change the date/time of a prior action first so that the order of the actions remains the same.

Racked into an incorrect container and unable to undo the racking?

If it’s not possible to undo a racking (for a reason that’s not easily resolvable), then you might be able to sort this out by transferring the beer from its current container to another container. To do this, see:
