If you wanna spend fifty bucks, you could get a good mr beer kit from amazon.
I started with cider, its easy, and it was recommended to me as a first try brew. I spent all of 10 bucks on a gallon of AJ that came in a glass jug, which i am fermenting in, a bung, an airlock, champange yeast, and I had suger at home...
So fifty could get you some where. PPl talk jazz about Mr. Beer kits, but i plan on getting one, look at the mr beer sticky, there is a lot of good talk about how its great for getting an easy start.
