Webinar Summary

Data management at a brewery can be a real challenge. On the other hand, your data, when properly managed, can be one of your most valuable assets to improve the quality of your beers and efficiency of your operations. This webinar looks to provide participants with a foundation of the basics of data management and best practices. From there, the presenters will introduce an established framework for what data to collect based on your brewery size, the ASBC Sampling Plan, and how to implement and utilize the ASBC Sampling Plan on the open source and low cost data management system, Brewery Pi.
