Title: measuring output
Post by: Matty8251 on August 10, 2013, 07:40:34 PM
What are people using to measure product output  for sale, for tax purposes?

In most states it's the Tax Determination tank. AKA Bright Tank. Some states want post packaging volumes, but for TTB reporting the bulk tank is fine.

Yup, tax determination tank.  Brite tank now, when we were a nano we used kegs.  BeerSmith isn't too useful after wort is in the fermenter.

We still use it as a way to track yield and stats. I've created a production report by heavily modifying the brewsheet in C++. I've added places to document gravity and pH readings, yeast harvest, trub dumps and all the other tings to let a brewing team know what's happening in any tank.
