Tracking Variable Costs

One of the things we’re still tracking outside of BREWW is our total cost for each brand brewed. While BREWW tracks ingredient and fixed costs like labor, we use a percentage of the total cost of the batch multiplied by the length of time it takes to produce the beer to estimate opportunity cost, which we use in pricing our beers. For example: our lagers are priced similarly to our DIPA’s, because even though the ingredient cost is much lower in a lager, it’s tying up a vessel we can’t otherwise use for several months.

It would be great to assign these variable costs (even if they’re determined outside of BREWW) to specific beers.
