Manage Commercial Cidery Workflow with Ekos Cidermaker

Making cider has become serious business, much like brewing beer has become a gigantic booming industry in America, the cider world is growing in rapid leaps and producers like to have flexible tools available to help maximize their time and production schedules.

Until now there weren’t too many options for tech savvy cidermakers, and a few had taken to using beer  or wine making software (blasphemy!). That may have helped a little with cider batch management but that didn’t do everything, like filing paperwork, tracking kegs, and actually dealing with the needs of cider production .. and this is where Ekos comes in! Ekos has been in the liquid management software business since 2014, and their software is growing with the needs of its users. On the beer side they have over 1000 brewery users and they will be launching a version for wineries in the future!

(ok, I admit it .. I am a cidermaker that is using Ekos brewmaster and I am excited to make the jump to Ekos cidermaker!)
