A Word From THE FOUNDERS
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?
The 5th Ingredient develops all-in-one brewery management systems that makes it easy to use your data for real-time process improvement.
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
- 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.
