It's beta, so there's always a risk of running into some bugs, both minor or major.
You can have a look at the beta thread where users have posted their feedback about it, both good and bad, to see what kind of bugs you might face. You can then decide for yourself if you want to try it or not, as it is your phone and your decision in the end.
Do note that at this moment you can't simply install beta via local upgrade if you're on the latest stable 126.96.36.199 version. You would have to downgrade first because that's a higher version than beta 1 is and this method will wipe all your data.
No, it is not recommended.
I would say, go on. Install it. The stable version too have many bugs. Many many many bugs. Still we are using it. Atleast you can try something new. Explore it.
But, follow my opinion only if you enjoy exploring.
