Good thread topic. As my bar nears completion I too at times wonder what i will do when my daughter gets to be an age where beer and curiosity meet. Forunately right now i have convinced her that only boys drink beer and girls drink milk water and juice. Being only 4 she is still pretty innocent...........not looking forward to 12 years from now

to the op, in order to prevent it happening again your approach has to be parenting... locking up the tap makes it more desireable for the youngin's to break in and sneak a drink. it also, imho sends a message that drinking beer is bad, and shouldn't be done.

16 imho, is not too young to sit her down and give her a half pint and teach her to responsibly enjoy it... it's looked upon as dodgey in todays society, but my dad gave us beers at sixteen, hence my love for his crap taste in beer, and for generations beer has been embraced as a social drink, not something to get smashed on...

good luck.

All the "right" parenting in the world isn't necessarily going to keep a kid from doing something stupid. I sure as hell don't think the way my folks raised me was the root cause of my getting absolutely trashed when I was 15/16 years old. Kids are kids, you can teach them to be responsible, you can be a good role model, you can do your best to teach and re-inforce positive behavior - but sometimes, they're going to have to learn the hard way.

In other words, revrand65, don't kick yourself for your daughter getting into the homebrew. Please, though, teach her to keep her clothes on before the boys in school learn what she does when she gets a couple drinks in her...

Tell her if she ever does it again she will have to go to church every Sunday. That should do the trick.

How many men of the cloth do we actually have here? I never figured homebrewing would figure so prominently with that demographic, but it doesn't not make sense to me...

When I was growing up, drinking Daddy's stash would have been stealing. I didn't drink until I could get it on my own.

I think padlocking the refer, with a valve inside, is the best alternative. Double check the hinges too, kids are as smart as their parents were.

The only thing locks might may help with is to save your bacon when you need to explain what have you tried to prevent your beer is not readily accessible. Hope you never have to.
