No minimum age on yeast, hops, barley, or plastic. What you happen to do with it is your business.
My 18yo neighbors in the dorm had one of these for many several batches of beer before it was confiscated by RAs.
10 years later, I bought one for my wife and we were impressed with the kit beer.
+1 on follow sterilization instructions well. I'll add the sanitize cycle on your dishwasher might be a good idea, but I forget if that too hot to melt the plastic.
+1 on wait longer than instructions say for good beer. We waited ~6-8 weeks and it was pretty tasty.
+1 on measure carbonation sugar well. We didn't have any catastrophes, but some were more carbonated than others; At least one or two were duds.

Use champagne bottles for your beer! Strong, cheap and take a standard bottle cap. Make sure your capping device will work on bottles with a thicker neck. Second tip: Join a home brew club!
