You will see, reading other reviews, that some people were upset they didn't get the beer varieties they expected. My advice is, if this is critical to you, buy the items individually. You'll spend quite a bit more, though. I got the Mexican Cerveza (which I expected based on the product description at the time) and the American Lager (not what I expected). But it really didn't matter much because I planned to try lots of different kinds.
And yes, the fermenter is a cheap, plastic thing, but so what? It works, and I understand they last a while. My keg/fermenter had a bad seal and was not usable when I got it, like some others. But I got on the phone to Mr. Beer, and within hours they had a new one on the way via UPS. Mr. Beer customer service is as good as any I've experienced.
The directions are pretty simple. The only corrections I'd offer is you will have better beer if you ferment a full three weeks and let it sit in the bottle for at least four weeks. Some versions of the instructions downplay the patience needed and say to ferment just two weeks. A couple years ago, the directions said to ferment a week or two, let it sit in the bottle for two more, then dive in. The folks at Mr. Beer have gotten more realistic since then with an emphasis on quality rather than speed.
Now for the beer. I waited five months between purchasing this kit and reviewing it, because I didn't want to make a snap judgment based on scant info. You really have to go through the process several times and have several batches to judge how good it is. I have made one batch each of the past five months and three are now ready to drink. The first was pretty good, the second was so-so, and the third, a cerveza-based recipe called Noche del Lobo, is spectacular.
People who give one- and two-star reviews here and say it's garbage probably just rushed through the process or had poor sanitation. It's also important to keep the beer in the 65-70 degree range while fermenting. I just use an old Coleman camping cooler I had laying around with some frozen water bottles to keep it from heating up too much and producing off-flavors.
Bonus tip: If you order this, or even if you're just thinking about it, go to the Mr. Beer website and find the forum. There's a great community of helpers there.
So for me the bottom line is: $50 for a couple cases (almost) of beer and a great new hobby is a bargain.
Don't let the price or size of this fool you it makes good beer. The difference between good beer and great beer is all in the ingredients. The vessel used to make the beer doesn't matter all that much. The MrBeer kit is a simple extract beer that tastes fine, but you can make all grain beers, ciders, mead, wine and varieties of each with this. The beer kit these come with are made by Coopers and make a fine beer with about 1 hour of total work time. It takes about 30 min to "mix" the ingredients and about 30 min to bottle. The rest of the time is spent waiting for the yeast to do its magic and then waiting for the beer to age.
The instructions are over simplified and the yeast could be better but the vessel works great. The Mr Beer brand refills are way over priced. If you must do an extract brew buy a full size kit and split it. An open kit, sealed in the fridge will keep a few weeks.
It's good for beginners or pro's, whether you're making an all extract beer or a test batch of an all grain pumpkin stout, it works.
*You can find these leftover from Christmas in various stores at a huge discount, if you look around. Very worth it especially for the over priced refill kits. I purchased 5 of these +2 refills for $100
