**Note:**Users should have pre-requisite understanding of what a Formula is/when it's required before viewing this RTD-specific resource. For a Dx5 Support resource on Formulas, check out this article: Definitions: Formula (Read Time: 5 mins).

Users with TTB-approved Formulas can build those in Dx5 to track Material/Formula usage.

To set up a new Dx5 Formula:

- Navigate to
**Operations > Setup** - Click the
**Setup Actions**button in the upper right corner; choose "New Recipe/Formula" - Enter a Name and Abbreviation to reference the new Dx5 Formula.
- Abbreviations = Maximum of 6 Characters.

- Abbreviations = Maximum of 6 Characters.
- Check the "Designate as Formula" option.
**Official Formula Name:**The name or number of the TTB-approved Formula.**Start ABV:**the Starting ABV the Base liquid will be gauged at before applying the Formula.**End ABV:**the Ending ABV the Base liquid will be gauged at after applying the Formula's ingredients + water.

**Designate as Formula**allows you to pre-set the Alcohol Content change of a Batch upon Dx5 Formula application. For example, if an approved Formula always changes your base spirit Batch from 95 ABV to 8 ABV after water + ingredients are added, setting the Starting/Ending ABVs*will*update Dx5 Batch Volume/ABV upon Formula application.- Dx5 will require users' source Batches to be at
*exactly*the Start ABV stated on the Formula before application if Designate as Formula is selected.

- Dx5 will require users' source Batches to be at

**Baseline Batch Volume**refers to the starting Volume of spirit involved in this Formula. Example: if a Formula is approved based on a starting spirit Volume of 500 L, enter that as the Baseline Batch Volume.

- If
**Scale Recipe/Formula**is selected, this Formula's materials will be scaled up or down automatically based on differences in the Batch Volume users are running the Formula against.- Example: a Formula's Baseline Batch Volume of 500 L is established which requires 100lbs of material is being ran against a 250 L batch - Dx5 scales the Formula's Material application down to 50lbs automatically.

- Example: a Formula's Baseline Batch Volume of 500 L is established which requires 100lbs of material is being ran against a 250 L batch - Dx5 scales the Formula's Material application down to 50lbs automatically.

- If
- Add
**Recipe/Formula Materials**as appropriate and relevant to the Baseline Batch Volume.- The below Formula is set up with the Materials/Material Amounts applied to a 500 L Baseline Batch Volume:
- Use "+Add Another Material" to add all required Materials to the Formula.
- If a Material is not available in the drop-down menu, navigate to
**Inventory > Overview**and build the necessary Item using the steps in this resource: Inventory: Add New Raw Material (Read Time: 4 mins).

- The below Formula is set up with the Materials/Material Amounts applied to a 500 L Baseline Batch Volume:
**Apply Batch Type Modifier**can be selected to allow the Dx5 Formula to automatically update the Batch Type of the Batch that users are applying their Formula to.- Example: My Formula calls for Material applications to NGS, which will change spirit identity from NGS to Grapefruit Vodka Fizz. By establishing a Starting and End Batch Type here, Dx5 will automatically update my Batch's Batch Type from "NGS" to "CC-Grapefruit Vodka Fizz" upon application of my Formula:

- Enter an optional
**Description**, or note/comment, for the new Formula if desired. - Click the orange
**Save Changes**button to save the new Formula.
