Record keeping software help

Recommended Posts

We are a small brewery that has recently started to distill.  We currently sell only in the tasting room and do not distribute.  We are looking for a cost effective record keeping solution.  ANY help would be appreciated, we are drowning in the lack of knowledge about distilling paperwork.

Hoochware is the least expensive option.  I have been on it for a couple of years and it does the job, plus it's getting better all the time.  Really makes record keeping easy.

We use Distillery Solutions and it works great. With that said you should have someone on your team who understands TTB distilled spirits regs and knows how to do paperwork without the aid of software. Your data is only as good as the people who generate it.

Best to hire a competent distiller or consultant to set you on the right track with record keeping.

Hoochware  and Distillitrak are what I am looking at at the moment.  Would the basic on Hoochware work?  As far a team member goes, my wife and I are basically the team.  We have several wonderful part timers that help us out from time to time, however we will be doing all the paper work as they have full time jobs.

I think all the software works similarly.  Enter all your actions and it does the reports.  That isn't hard, it just takes discipline to keep up.

What's the cost on these two systems?

100% in agreement. Doubly so on the discipline part.

We use whiskey systems. I think it's about $300 / month.

Hoochware has different levels from basic to pro depending on your needs.  The prices are $89-$199 per month, for a cloud base system with no set up fee and your locked in that the price.  Their web site does a good job of explaining.  Distillitrack does not have a professional product on the market yet, however they are beta testing one. Their pricing is the old school system, you buy the software and it's your, no monthly fee and no cloud.  I do not know the price, but I believe it was under $200.
