Default anheuser busch keg

A there any way I can reuse a anheuser busch keg for homebrewing. They are the 15.5 gallon kegs.

Can I use them as is or do I need to referb any of the seals?

Keg re-purposing is always a touchy subject around here, but you may want to make sure it's not still the property of AB before cutting into it. The Brewers Association set up a web site to return wayward kegs. Can't speak to how well it works, or if you even want to use it but here you go.

Thanks everybody. Now do I have to fill it full in order to use it or can I use a partial fill.

Partial fill works fine, but you'll need to purge it a lot more to get the O2 out.
