Completely attainable when you can get your base malt for around $.60-.70/lb, hops at $1/oz and specialty malts at around $2/lb (assuming not buying bulk for specialty grains).
Typical Stout/Porter Brew Example
9 lbs 2-row @ $.70/lb = $6.30
4 lbs specialty @ $2/lb = $8.00
3 oz hops @ $1/oz = $3.00
Liquid yeast (new) = $6.50
Total = $23.80
