Using the Top Off feature

The purpose of Top Off is to fill vessels that that have been partially filled and will now be filled to vessel capacity.

The Top Off feature can be completed via:

  • a task in a work order via the web interface or mobile app
  • a direct action on the lot

For example, you may have barrels partially filled during a white fermentation. Once the fermentation finishes and you are ready to top up the barrels, you will want to use the Top Off action or task to fill them up to capacity.

If you are performing a topping round and do not want to change the inventory volume of a lot (i.e. topping vessels for evaporation), use the Topping action instead. 

How to Record a Top Off action

1) In the Top Off from section, select the vessel that you are removing volume from. In this case, we are topping off a partial barrel from other kegs. Specify the amount that was removed from this vessel and used to top off the others.


2) In the Top Off to section, select the lot(s) and vessel(s) that were filled. You can manually fill in the cells under the Add or Ending Fill column, or you can use the Ending Fill dropdown to apply a volume to all vessels in bulk.


3) Review the summary for accuracy. Add a note if you wish, then record the Top Off action.

The Top Off action only allows you to remove volume from one lot at a time. You can use that same lot to top off multiple lots and vessels within the same action. Click on  under the Top Off to header to add more lots to be topped off.
