With this new integration, we continue to pioneer and evolve a new wave of brewery data management software. We are committed to helping breweries #BrewBetterBeer and helping brewers take a more confident, proactive approach to their processes, rather than a reactive one. From a quality perspective, the first 3-4 days of fermentation are crucial, and with BrewIQ fermentation data sent directly to Beer30®, breweries have even more flexibility to make better data-driven decisions, powered by smart sensor technology. Beer30’s data visualization tools allow users to graph all data, identify trends and anomalies, and compare a beer brand across multiple batches. By combining BrewIQ’s real-time data with Beer30’s robust Batch History functionality, breweries can take their grain-to-glass analysis to the next level. Whenever two of the top innovators in an industry come together, the industry wins as a whole.


The 5th Ingredient
Miami Lakes, FL

We are thrilled to be part of another first in our industry. Accessing real-time data from the BrewIQ Fermentation Hub®️ from Beer30’s software suite allows brewers to track, from a single dashboard, all operational actions and ingredients that produce each batch, side-by-side with precise outcomes of these factors as data is streamed directly from inside the fermentation tank. Beer30 excels in management of all elements that go into each batch, including precise ingredient information, tank management, CIP tracking and so much more. Adding live, high-resolution fermentation data not only greatly reduces the overhead and inconsistency of manual sampling, but it also finally puts in the hands of brewery staff the ability to correlate detailed results from all brewery processes at a single glance and with high accuracy. This integration offers a leap forward in quality assurance that can have a major impact on any brewery’s bottom line.

The 5th Ingredient

Ready to ditch the old-school methods of paper logs, whiteboards, and spreadsheets? Tired of trying to juggle multiple software systems to find a single solution that fits your process? Do other brewery software systems feel more like they were built for accountants rather than the brewer?

Brewery Data Management Software

  • Track all process data to ensure full traceability from grain-to-glass.
  • Understand the COGS behind each batch and better analyze your profit margins.
  • Perform sensory and VDK analysis on a daily basis, along with many other quality checkpoints.

Kombucha Brewery Management

  • Brew into the same mother tanks and track fermentation profiles over months and years.
  • Understand the way your SCOBY health is doing as you harvest and repitch into new brews.
  • Track inventory for base sugars and teas, hops, and flavored tea adjuncts.

The BrewIQ® System

The BrewIQ® System, from Precision Fermentation, is a real-time, end-to-end fermentation monitoring and analysis solution, that is purpose-built to enable brewers to increase quality and profitability through greatly enhanced fermentation-process control. It brings the “Internet of Things” (IoT) to the brewing process by collecting fermentation data from your existing tanks, and streaming it to your PC, tablet or smartphone, in real-time.
Our pre-built dashboards transform your fermentation tanks into a powerhouse of insight that finally puts brewing control into your hands – ensuring brewed-product quality, increasing your production options, and saving you time and money.

Quality Control Processes, Simplified

Get immediate, actionable information to inform your most important production decisions:
  • Batch-to-Batch Quality Analysis helps easily ensure consistency and improve the quality of your operational processes.
  • Set custom alert thresholds, per fermentation and for each measurement, to receive the most relevant alerts about problems.
  • Replace traditional “snapshot” sampling with exponentially more data: ~1,000 data points per day.
  • Enter and save manual measurements together with automatic readings for centralized storage and full analysis of all data sources.
  • Expand quality control processes to improve outcomes, save time and reduce costs.
