Introduction

Adding a beer keg to your venue is similar to adding any other item, however, it is unlikely to have a barcode, so you’ll need to add it manually.

If you have a freight/shipping scale and intend to weigh your partial kegs during inventory, you’ll need to add a full keg weight beforehand. You can learn more about recommended keg scales under “Keg Scale” in this article.”

Note: Do not use the Bluetooth scale to weigh your kegs. The supported models of Bluetooth scales only have a max capacity of 11lbs (5000g) - 13lbs (6000g). Placing a keg on the Bluetooth scale may damage it.

You can add beer kegs on both the WISK Web Portal and mobile app.
