Equipment and Software / faucet locks

Anyone out there using these with Perlick faucets?
Faucet Lock
Do they work effectively?
I hate that I'm even asking but we have kids and the kids friends at the house and they're getting to the age that I recall becoming "experimental". I would prefer to remain trustful yet part of me thinks I should try to remove temptation. At least as it applies to my brew.

Have you considered making a Steam Beer?  Same temps, lager yeast...delicious beer. I'd say a steam with Willamette and Mt. Hood could be mighty tasty. Cheers to fermentation temp. control! :)

Capturing would be a better word than creating but whatever, that's pretty damn clever!

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: 6 gallon buckets - - Big enough?

I use 7 gallon brew buckets when I my 6.5 carboys are busy. I've never had any blowouts from one of my buckets.  I usually am doing 10 gallon split batches as well.

I had to give up the stogies a few years back, but I like it when the other guys fire em up.  Brings back memories of great cigars gone by...what is your favorite brew to drink with a cigar?
My Oatmeal Stout was fantastic with a cigar, girlfriends Hazelnut Brown is really nice too. 
Cigars can vary as much as beers and can pair nicely with a wide range of beer depending on the strength and character of the cigar. 
That said, my favorite pairing is actually a triad. Stogie, whiskey and beer; if you have some whiskey I think you can enjoy a wider range of beers in the same sitting. You should really be sitting.

I have to remember to take a couple nice stogies to Big Brew! :)

Extract/Partial Mash Brewing / Re: Brewing with my dad

My Dad LOVES Black Butte Porter. That's what he would want to make. Deschuttes has a homebrew page on their website where they disclose the ingredients for their recipes (not amounts or times).
What kinds of beer does your Dad like?
That's really cool that you're doing that by the way.

Excellent! Three more reasons to visit the folks. ::)

The Pub / Re: RIP Junior

With the initial speculation being a self-inflicted gun shot and the shot being to the chest, I'm wondering if Junior wasn't suffering from brain injuries and took the same route as Dave Duerson so that his brain could be studied as well.
That's what folks are saying.

I was wondering why folks were talking about 1056...anyway, I would just rehydrate and pitch the Safale.  Save your 1272 for another batch and make a starter.

Nitrogen is the element they want during the vegetative growth stage. A balanced N-P-K fertilizer will suffice.  There are many strategies to "fertilize".
