Head Brewer or Cider Maker


Task Management for Teams & Individuals

Ekos treats all batches as projects, allowing you to break out the batch into specific tasks. With the freedom to assign tasks to your team members, you gain full visibility into each step of the batch process and your brewery or cidery floor. You can assign production tasks as well as maintenance, cleaning, inventory checks, and packaging.

  • View the batch from a high-level overview or expand into a detailed format
  • Have individual task lists per user — allowing for focused work
  • Schedule batch events and inventory removal, such as dry hopping, on the exact day it happens


Updated Real-Time Inventory by Location

Gone are the days of manually updating your inventory spreadsheet after brewing or fermenting a batch. Instead, you can create and save recipe templates, add all your ingredients for your batch into Ekos, and inventory will be automatically depleted as you brew. Even with many batches going at once, you'll be able to easily plan batches.

  • With a simple click on the facility view, check inventory in each storage location
  • Run reports on current inventory, whether raw materials or finished goods
  • See real-time updates as multiple users are working in the system


Forecasting Tools for Raw Material Usage

Forecasting your ingredients is important for maintaining a consistent production schedule. With the forecasting tool in Ekos, you can view the anticipated ingredient usage by category based on the batches you have planned.

  • Filter by month, week, or year to get specific on the dates you want to see
  • Easily see which ingredients are falling below your set reorder threshold
  • Click into specific columns to see details on associated purchase orders, inventory receipts, or batches


Packaging Plans for Each Batch

Adding packaging plans for each batch allows you to estimate the finished good products that will come from a specific batch. These plans feed into your forecasting tool, allowing your team (especially sales) to see the anticipated finished good inventory coming down the line.

  • Plan out specific quantities in specific packaging types, from half barrels and sixtels to bottles and cans
  • View the quantity planned vs. quantity packaged to see where plans have fallen short
  • Use the forecasting tool to identify if you have enough production in progress to meet upcoming orders
