Breww supports multi-turn batches, allowing you to specify how many times you need to brew (each brew being a “turn”) in order to reach your required in-vessel volume.
When creating your planned batch, just enter the number of planned turns. Breww will then create your planned turns, splitting the planned volume evenly over each turn.
You’ll be able to see the planned turns and their current status on the batch itself.
You can start the next turn by clicking the Start Turn X button on the batch, or from Brewing → Start Turn X.
To end a turn and transfer it to the your fermenting vessel, click Actions → Transfer Turn X, from Brewing → Transfer out of brewing system → Transfer Turn X, or from Brewing → Turn X → Transfer out of brewing system.
You can have multiple turns in the same brewing system at the same time, so if you start the second turn whilst the first turn is still in the brewing system, Breww has you covered.
By setting up the component brewing vessels within your brewing system, for example, a Mash tun, Boil kettle etc., you can record the volume transfers between each within Breww.
To record a transfer between your brewing vessels, simply click the turn’s tab within the from the batch’s brewing page Turn actions → where you can either Add volume to brewing vessel or Transfer to the next brewing vessel.
You can manage a brewing system’s vessels from Production → View → All equipment → View brewing system.
In order to use a recipe on a multi-turn batch, Breww needs to know which stages of the recipe should be repeated per turn and which happen only once per batch.
You can do this by going to the recipe and clicking Edit recipe → Scroll down to each stage that should be repeated per turn → Edit → Set Is this stage repeated per turn to Yes.
These recipe stages will then be repeated per turn on the batch’s brewing page, allowing you to record readings for those stages per turn, and appear multiple times on the PDF brew sheet. Ingredients can be assigned either to the entire brew day, or an individual turn.
