I would convert it to ball lock Cornelius kegs. They are easier to fill, clean, lift, use, and are much cheaper. Plus you can get 3 kegs where the 1/2 barrel used to be.

Cleaning out and sanitizing those large kegs is a bit of a problem, the one benefit is that they hold about 15.5 gallons of whatever beer you put in them. Most people don't brew that much of one kind, so going with the cornies is your best bet. I would recommend converting that left over keg into a brew kettle, and start brewing 10 gallons at a time.
