QB Issue Resolution:

QB is accounting so actual costs are what is entered in accounting.

QB, especially QBO does not do that kind of “manufacturing” well at all.  I would suggest you expense your ingredients to COGS when you purchase, make and sell what you need to using a service type item.

No, can not track anything by batch number, lot number etc with out a very cumbersome work around, major PITA
