$50 a piece sounds high to me. I have been paying 20-30$ for sankes. However you can certainly use them for fermentation.
It appears they are the same size as a 15.5 gallon keg but are half the height. I am assuming they are 7.75 gallons? Advertised as "half sized beer kegs"
It does sound a little steep but I'm thinking that they are much more durable and a little easier to tote around than a carboy.
