As someone who brews his own beer, I do NOT recommend this. My girlfriend got me one over a year ago... the little keg leaked like a sieve at a seem line, the "beer" is not as advertised and not close to full bodied. I recommend spending the same on a two bucket setup (1 bucket is for fermenting, and the second bucket is optional if you don't want to bottle out of the first bucket; if you get one bucket only, I recommend burning a quart bottle and drain the first quart into it, but I like to save my yeast so I do this anyways), an airlock (I have both S trap and tri bubble, they both work great), and a real beer kit. You will thank yourself, and might even fall in love with the process... I am brewing 15 gallons at a time now over 3 fermenters... 2 batches of beer, 1 of mead.
@ Massdrop, if you want suggestions for real beer kits, let me know. I will be glad to help out.
