12 lb American two row, 1 lb Light crystal and 4 oz Centennial hops. Not sure what else might come in a kit. That's $1.54/lb for the grain and the Hops are free! The cheapest my LHBS has grain for right now is over $2/lb. It's a little over $1 if I buy a full sack.

It should have yeast as well.

Just checked, yeast is extra.

Yeah, that's always been the case with NB, MB, and such. Although they're sold as homebrew kits, they're not complete at all. Many first time brewers have been caught in that caveat: there's no yeast!

4 ingredients make beer: Malt (extract), Hops, Water, and Yeast.

We can accept they don't supply the water. But at least a Campden tablet, and a pouch of a suitable dry yeast (or better, a choice from a selection) should be included at regular retail $40+ kit pricing, with the option to exchange it for a different yeast, paying the price difference if there is one.

Wishful thinking, we know.

The grain came mixed. I'm not sure what 8% Caramel 10L brings to the table. I guess a touch of sweetness. Centennial is labeled 4.9% AA. One has to wonder if that is a misprint. Northern Brewer website lists their centennial a 9-12%. Maybe the low AA is part of the reason for the discount. Fingers crossed on the yeast. It's been in my chest freezer for a couple years.
