Where did you buy them from? My son is 11 and has some friends that I'm not so sure about. Don't want to have to explain to their parents why they got drunk off my homebrew.

He's not sitting around the house getting drunk when we're not home, but I'm just not comfortable with him getting into the beer at all when I'm not home.

Back on topic I ordered faucet locks. I hate to be the guy who has to lock up his beer, but when diplomacy fails the the soldiers are deployed.
Fair enough
Got a link to the $2.50 valves? - just read you got the locks.

One reason I have not gone for taps yet (other than the costs!) is because of my son... he's 16 months and likes to play with everything so I'm sure if I had taps I would come home one night and he would be all sticky covered in beer! (and probably loving it, I mean who wouldn't )

Locking up your stuff is not mean, or untrustworthy.. it keeps honest people honest.

You could hang a pair of your dirty underwear on the faucets. He might never drink form them again.

Or rig up a booby trap so that if he pours a beer he gets an electric shock!

I was thinking they might, I was just thinking the valve might cause excess foam. I would only need to use them a few months out of the year for when he's home so the locks might be the less troublesome of the two options.
