That does not sound like a bad deal. I know the local brew store to me sells a beginnger kit with one stage fermentation plastic bucket for about $65. So it is like you are getting the glass carboy for free. Another place to look for kits is on ebay, I found mine there for approx $30 and it came with 7 gallon fermentation bucket, hoses, capper, caps, brush, sg gage, bottling bucket, airlock and sanitizing agent and it was all brand new. The local store sell 6 gal carboys for around $20 so we would come out about equal after I payed shipping. Ebay is not as convenient for those wanting to brew this weekend but you can find deals every now and then.
