Prerequisites

  1. Barrels have been filled: Filled Barrels

 

Important note before beginning:

By default, the production orders needed to tip the filled barrels will not show up on the Barrel Management Console. Below are the steps to follow to enable those production orders to appear.

Barrel aged beer:

  • Easiest Method – Change the Process Type on the particular Bright Beer item to “Aging”. If the particular brand of product will go straight into bottle, change the Bright Beer
  • Create a Process Type called “Dumping” and set it to show on the Barrel Management Console.
    • For info on how to create a Process Type, please see the following link: Create a New User Defined Process Type
    • Create the item master data for this new process type
    • Change the packaging items for this brand of beer to pull from the new item master of this Process Type

Barrel aged spirits:

This completely depends on the type of spirit and its production steps, however, here are a couple suggestions

  • Create a Process Type called “Dumping” and set it to show on the Barrel Management Console. For info on how to create a Process Type, please see the following link: Create a New User Defined Process Type
  • Change the Process Type for the item in the next production step to “Aging”

----------------------------------------------------------------------

Once you have adjusted you have followed the previous steps.

OSpirits

Go to Production > Production Forms > Barrel Management Console, click on the Home tab.

Select the row of the Production order for which you want to tip, then click Dump Barrels.

The Express Production Screen appears for the selected production order. From there you fill in the Receive Qty and make any changes to the header fields in that window. If you are running OrchestratedSPIRITS, there is a Proof field available to fill out in the header.

Before this production order can be processed, the barrels to be dumped must be selected. To do this, click on the Barrel Selection tab.

On this tab, click the Search button to bring up the list of barrels to be dumped. To narrow the list of barrels, you may choose to filter the search results using any of the fields next to the Search button.

Select the rows for the barrels you want to tip. To select individual rows, hold Ctrl and click each row. You may also click a row, hold Shift, and then click a different row to select a range of barrels to use. Once the barrels to use are highlighted, click Select.

If you need to remove a selected barrel or if you want to redo your selection, highlight the row(s) you want to remove and then click the Unselect at the bottom right.

Once the Barrel Selection is set, the next step is to click on the Barrel Matching tab.

On this tab, you match the barrel item consumed with the barrel item that will be created once the production order is processed and the barrels have been filled.

In this example, we are dumping from 4 used oak barrels and the output can be either 4 used empty oak barrels. Mark the warehouse to Receive Shells To

Once the Barrel Matching is set, click the Pdo Lines tab.

On this tab, you want to double check the component that will be issued from stock. In this case, there are multiple component batches for each barrel that was filled. Only the barrels that were selected to tip will have the quantity filled out in the ActQty column.

If everything on the Pdo Lines tab is correct, you are ready to click the Process button. The prompt to open the Edit Barrels form opens, feel free to jump in or not. 

OBeer

Go to Production > Production Forms > Barrel Management Console, click on the Home tab.

Select the row of the Production order for which you want to tip, likely for bright beer, then click Dump Barrels.

Other than the liquid, the process is the same. You'll notice a difference on the Express Production screen. Once again, there are no Proof fields. See an example below. The Barrel Matching and Pdo Lines tabs follow the same steps listed above. 

 

Dump from the Management Tab (Partial Dump)

When has a special projects manager ever just wanted to create the next tasting room special without going through the hassle of having to do a production order and create a BoM and all that? Or maybe, there was 1 off special flavored whiskey that just had to get out the door. In this article, we'll look at process for just dumping barrels to create... well... whatever! Even hats! No BoM or PdO required!

Barrel Management Console

  1. Navigate to the Barrel Management Console at Production > Production Forms > Barrel Management Console.
  2. Click on the Management tab, and select the barrels you are going to do dump.
  3. Once selected, press the Dump button.

Click the Dump button to bring up the Dump Barrels window. You can select the volume to dump from each barrel. This liquid will go into the item mentioned in the header of this form. Once complete, click Express. This brings you to the normal Express Screen mentioned above 

The Dump Barrels Screen

Alright now that your barrels are selected and the Dump Barrels screen has been launched we need to fill out some key information.

  • Final Item: What the barrels turn into. This could be bright beer, bottle proofed spirits, a finished good item, or yes... hats.
  • Destination Whs: This is where that final item will be received. 
  • Date: When did this happen?
  • Quantity: This field will pre-populate based on the volumes of the selected barrels, but you can, of course, change it. Its how much of whatever you are going or have received.
  • Proof (OSpirits Only): What is the proof of the batch of whatever you are receiving.
  • Batch: Now give this stuff a batch ID, most common is the date.

Got that filled out? Excellent! Now press the Express button.

NOTE: See that little "..." button, that will pull in PdOs that you can select from if you have one already planned. This will update all of the above information automatically.

Express Production

Since most of the information has already been filled out, we've plopped it right on the express screen for you. There are a couple of other key data points before we're done.

  1. Click on the Barrel Matching tab and select the appropriate next stage barrel template from the drop down menu.
  2. Next, click on the PdO Lines tab and make sure you are consuming the amount you want out of the barrels. This is important if you are bottling off of a single barrel and don't consume the entire barrel for that package type. 
  3. Once you are finished, click the Process button and your done!
  4. If you completely empty the barrel, its status will change to 'Empty'
