When entering a beer batch into Breww, you can choose which vessels (fermenters, brite tanks, barrels, etc) the batch should use.
At any time, you can see an overview of all your batches and their vessel usage at Production → Batch schedule. As you can plan your batches in advance, this is really useful for capacity planning.
When you add a batch to Breww (that’s brewed on-site), you’ll see a calendar in the form on which you can “draw” events to indicate the vessels used in the batch. If you need to adjust a planned event, you can move the events by dragging and dropping them or resizing them by dragging from the start or end. To remove an event completely, simply click on it and confirm. Breww will keep an eye on your schedule as you work on it and show you below the calendar when the batch will be started (based on the schedule) and if there are any gaps in the planned vessels.
Please see the below short video to guide you through this process:
(Hint: If the above video is too small, click on the “maximise” button at the bottom-right of it to view it in full-screen.)
You can schedule as many vessels as you need to - just keep “drawing lines” on the calendar.
If you need to schedule a vessel that overlaps with an existing “event”, make sure to start drawing the usage on the calendar by clicking in the white space underneath the existing event, as otherwise, Breww will think you’re trying to interact with the existing event. Here’s a short clip to demonstrate this:
If you plan any vessels to use in your batch, then Breww will automatically determine the batch start date from the date that the first vessel is used. If you don’t plan any vessels, then you can choose a planned start date from an input that shows below the vessel planning calendar (this is hidden if you have any vessels planned).
