It’s definitely tricky especially during summer when sales are slower. Even Starbucks hasn’t been that busy since it reopened. I over ordered on half and half and will have to give back three cases. I usually take the number 16 (crates) and subtract it with the number of crates that I have in the backroom. (I.E. If I have 24 cases of 2% and subtract 16, this give me 8 crates or 32 gallons) This seems to give me a number that works for Whole and 2%. During Christmas time and winter, I usually increase the number to 24 or higher. For Skim and 1%, I aim for a maximum of 6 crates (24 gallons) at a time since these tend to sell the least. Ultimately, though, you just have to figure out through trial and error what number works best for you.
