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.
AccessibleBuilt with craft brewers in mind, we built our own data portal for cloud access to your trusted QA/QC data. Everything from scheduling a test to knowing your test results are at your fingertips 24×7.
CustomizedWe know every brewery is different, and you want to know specific data about your beers. We set ourselves apart from traditional lab services with a simple to understand monthly subscription and affordable pricing that makes sense for small brewers.
SimplicityWith subscription boxes sent monthly to your doorstep, we take the pain out of mailing out samples. Everything is included in the box, just fill the sample jars, seal, and have the box picked up. You just ran out of excuses for not doing QA/QC at your brewery.
Production SuiteOur Production Suite is the building block of QA/QC. With an innovative subscription approach to lab work, we help you take the guesswork out of maintaining constancy and quality. You keep track of all testing results on the Fermly Portal (and now Beer30!) for on demand access to accurate statistics. Production Suite metrics are built to help you start understanding and implementing a trusted QA/QC program in the brewery.
FastWhy worry about finding ways to get samples to a testing lab? Our hassle-free subscription box makes your life easy. Fill up the sample jars, seal the box up with the included prepaid shipping label and arrange for pick up. You receive testing results on the Fermly Portal within 24-48 hours after it gets to us.
AccurateWhy shouldn’t every brewery have access to quality QA/QC? We designed a laboratory that would make most regional breweries jealous. Fermly is owned by a TTB certified chemist to help with your exportation needs. From 200 BBLs to 15,000 BBLs/year, our family of breweries trust our services.
