I live in Romania. Can anyone point me in the right direction for a 50L Sankey-style keg? Since this site is mostly visited by Americans - even if you don't have a specific lead for me, any suggestions would be appreciated, however vague.

I would try to find a bar/pub that serves American beer on tap, and ask who their distributor is. Call the distributor, and ask them if they happen to have an empty keg that they want to sell for a nominal price. This may be a damaged keg sometimes, but it may still work for your purpose.

Is there a reason that you need a Sankey? IIRC, Sankey refers to the coupler... Perhaps you can use one of the easier-to-find type "A" that is used in Germany?
