The 5th Ingredient
The 5th Ingredient helps breweries collect and utilize their data for proactive, predictive, process improvement. Our flagship product is Beer30®, a proprietary Software-as-a-Service, which allows a brewery to track data from grain-to-glass. In September 2020, we also launched Bucha30®, the world’s first Kombucha Brewery Management Software system.
The 5th Ingredient was founded in San Diego, California in October 2017 by Pulkit K. Agrawal (PKA). PKA graduated from Harvard College and began working in the beer industry as a Process Engineer at Ballast Point Brewing, where he focused on packaging lines and nitrogen beer.
