Default Cleaning commercial kegs.

I have a friend that owns a retail beverage store and I told him I wanted a couple of 15gal kegs for homebrew. I was going to use them for brew pots but my wife game me an awesome Fathers day present that took care of that.So I figured that I would use the for kegging. My question is how the hell do I clean these and how do I get the homebrew in. This is the first time I have ever been able to use these.

Honestly, unless you plan on brewing (and drinking) 15 gal batches, I'd give them back or sell them and get some corny kegs.

I fooled around with the comercial kegs for awhile too. I gave up due to the PIA of the snap ring and cleaning issues. Corneys are much easier.
