Yup..two of my kegs in inventory are sankeys. I do it all the time. You hit the nail on the head Just clean, fill it up, carb it up, and drink. The only think I don't like about my sankeys is the #8%@!!!! ring, I always seem to skin my knuckle trying to get it back on...taking it off is the easy part. IMHO Sankey kegs are easier to clean, too!
