Stock Control Setup Item Recipes

Building Stock Reduction Recipes

Once all of the stock items have been setup the sales items need to be linked to the stock items and setup to reduce the stock by the correct amount.

The best way to address this stage is from the Menumate Office Menu Editor.

Open Menumate Office and select EDIT MENUS and then open the menu you are adding the recipes to.

Work through each menu item and edit the item size and select the RECIPES tab.

 

Click on ADD to add a stock item. In the Reduction Quantity enter how the item should reduce the stock when it is sold and also select the Stock Reduction Location that the stock reduces from.

Wine is counted and purchased per bottle. When calculating the reduction quantity divide the number of mls in the glass (150 mls) by the number of mls in the bottle (750) to get the stock reduction quantity of 0.200

1 / 1

1.000

 

Beer is counted and purchased per Litre. So when a 50 Lt Keg is purchases the stock increases by 50 litres (not 1 KEG). When calculating the reduction quantity divide the number of mls in the pour (300 for a 10 Oz Beer) by the number of mls a litre (1000) to get the stock reduction quantity of 0.300.

 

Similar calculations can be made for bulk spirits, bulk wine or anything that is purchased in litres.

 

Post Mix

10 Ltr Box (Ltr)

300 ml Glass

300 / 1000

0.300

 

Post Mix are counted and purchased per litre. But in order to get the stock reduction correct you need to take into account the mix that goes into the post mix when it is poured into a glass. The best way to do this is to always multiple the counted quantities and the purchased quantity by 6 to convert the purchased item into the finished goods.

 

 So when a 10 Litre box of post mix is counted/purchases it is actually 60 Litres of finished posted mix. When calculating the reduction quantity divide the number of mls in the pour (300 for a glass of post mix) by the number of mls in a litre (1000) to get the stock reduction quantity of 0.300
