Coopers Microbrewery Kit Deals for Father's Day

It's a Beer Thing and a Spartan Thing!

One of the most popular hobbies in recent years has been small-scale brewing; producing high-quality beer at home. Millions of people have discovered the pleasures of creating, serving and drinking beer they make in their own "microbrewery".

Leading the way in the home microbrewery revolution was a commercial microbrewery in Adelaide, South Australia, the Coopers Brewery.

We think that a home brewing kit is one of the best Father's Day gifts there is.

If you get the kit for your Dad or husband on Father’s Day, he will be one lucky Dad!

And he can be drinking his own hand-crafted beer with his mates on Independence Day if he gets started right away. From the day he mixes and starts his brew fermenting, he will have to wait 7-10 days before bottling.

Then he must wait at least 3-4 days for the beer to naturally carbonate. Of course, as with anything this good, patience is rewarded. Dad's beer will continue to condition and improve for up to two months after it is bottled.

Experience Coopers homebrew.

It's easy with a Coopers home beer making kit!

Coopers beer kits are available in many delicious styles, including Lager, IPA, and Irish Stout. With the Coopers Micro Brewery Kit, beermaking is as easy as Mix, Brew, Bottle, Enjoy!

With Cooper's complete range of beer making supplies, you can customize your own Coopers homebrew.

Cheers! Spartan Fans!

Scholarship Experts - College Scholarships to MSU

Interested in attending Michigan State University - but need scholarship money?

There are a number of websites on the web that can help you find the scholarship money that you need.
See Green 300x250

  1. Scholarship Experts has been helping parents and students find scholarships and free college money since 2001. They have a huge database of college scholarships and grad school scholarships that can provide you with accurate and timely MSU scholarship information. Scholarship Experts is a free service for you!

  2. Fast webs college scholarship search is also a free service to find scholarships to help pay for your Spartan education. I especially liked Fast Webs because of all the extra information that you can find out. For example - learning how to make the most of education tax credits. The free scholarship search at Fastwebs is one of the most complete sources of local and college specific scholarships, FastWeb lists more than 1.3 Million Scholarships worth over $3 Billion.

  3. Financial Aid for students Believe it or not, getting money for college (MSU or others) is not as confusing or complicated as you might think if you visit eStudentLoan. Learn about consolidation loans and much more. A Consolidation Loan allows you to combine all the federal student loans you received to finance your post high school education into a single student loan.

    Consolidation can lower your monthly payment (now and in the future), offers the security of a fixed interest and provides the convenience of making one payment each month.

  4. Take a look at Simple Tuition. They have a unique website that allows you to search for loans and get rates for college from competing lenders. Very easy to use website. It is free also.

Better Business Bureau Scam - Not what you think!

Quick post here: Anyone have any similar issues with the BBB?

I am not sure what is true and what is not .. but the writer is 100% correct on one thing - there is an "obvious conflict-of-interest problem."

The BBB takes "subscription" or "membership" donations (donation? please) from businesses. This means that businesses are the BBB's source of income.

But businesses are their object of complaint!!!!

It doesn't seem to me that this should be legal?
