I thought this might pique the collective interest:

Of course, if you are thinking of using such a system to keep your teenage kids out of your kegerator, you are crazy. They'll have it hacked before you are out of the room.

I've told this story before. More than 10 years ago I had friends who invited me for a backyard barbecue, not a big bash but more of a small get-together with a total of eight or nine people. I brought a full corny keg of Oktoberfest, which we made a dent in but was still almost half full at the end of the evening. They said I didn't have to haul it home right away; why didn't I stop back the following day (Sunday) for brunch around noon.

When I arrived the keg was spitting foam. It didn't take us long to solve what had happened. Their 20-year-old son had come home after 1:00 am with two friends, and that was the end of it. The kid slept until 1:30 in the afternoon.

I keep a keg on tap at the camp's picnic shelter fridge. When I leave, I flip the coupling lever up and lock the padlock on the door. Nothing fancy!
