Short answer, no.

Kegs are around $40-50. A CO2 cylinder can run from free to $140, depending on size, condition, etc. You'll need a regulator, which is from $40-180. You'll need all the fittings, hoses, taps, etc which can be from $50-$200 depending on your setup. And if you want to keep all of that cold, add in the cost of a fridge/freezer and temp control.

Filling the CO2 tank varies by your location. I've paid $15-45 depending if I was in a rural or suburban area.
