In order to calculate the cost of semi-finished wort, tender beer and finished beer, it is necessary to adopt a certain method to reduce the production cost. Carry over between steps.
2. Craft beer brewing belongs to assembly line production, the production process is long, and it is often completed one after another over a month, and each step has products in the brewing process. The products in progress at the end of the month are mainly the products in the fermentation process, and the quantity is very large. Therefore, when calculating the product cost of each step at the end of the month, the production cost collected in this step should be allocated using the equivalent yield method, the quota cost method and other appropriate allocation methods. Distribute between products.
Finally, through the principles and methods of beer cost accounting, the correct and reasonable collection and allocation of materials and labor costs consumed in the beer production process, and calculate the beer manufacturing cost, can help beer companies to reveal cost management problems and find out the rise and fall of costs.
