Splitting batches in Breww

There may be occasions where you need to split a proportion of a batch away from the original to create a new separate batch.

Once your batch is in a primary vessel, you can split it into separate vessels. To split a batch, you will need to conduct a Transfer by heading to the batch and selecting ActionsTransfer between vessels. When splitting a batch, Breww will give you three options:

1. Keep one batch and split it across the two vessels
2. Create a new batch with the volume transferred
3. Start planned “Derived in vessel” batch with the volume transferred.

This article will cover option 2; Create a new batch with the volume transferred

By selecting this, Breww will create a new batch from the transfer with a new and unique batch number. This batch number will automatically follow your batch sequence, but this can be overridden if necessary.

If you are transferring the final amount in the vessel, this will not give you the option to split the batch, as this isn’t being split away from the original batch and will just count as a regular transfer. To split the final amount in a vessel into a new batch, a small amount of the batch will have to remain in the original vessel when transferring, which will be recognised as a batch split.

For more on options 1 and 3, please see the Alias, derived & guest beers and How to transfer between vessels help guides.
