It's certainly feasible, but you'd do well to experiment first with the other things like cyanotypes and toned cyanotypes for cheap hands on fun and learning. Same tools and paper, different chemistry. There are many images that make a terrible silver print and an awesome alt process print. Tones, midtones, colors, can make it or break it sometimes and it's good to have the creative output options.
Many people make big negatives with a scanner and inkjet printer which they use to make alt process contact prints.
