I know several people here use some sort of computer database to keep track of their bottles. I was wondering what program they use and how much info on each bottle they put in.
I am currently using Excel and have categories for name, age, proof, distillery, vintage, bottled on, barreled on, type and number of.
My problem came when I just used the current bottler for each bottle(ie. Charter is BT). This didn't help me to know that the Old Charter 12yo I had was actually a Louisville bottling(a nice surprise). I was going to correct this by adding in the UPC for each bottling-I figured that would give me a good idea of where each came from and who the owner was at the time. However I have one bottle that throws even that out the window, Old Fitz BIB Distilled at DSP-1 bottled at DSP-31, UPC 88076(UDV).
What does everyone else do? Program? Categories?
