I use sanke kegs as fermenters but much prefer corney kegs for serving beer. Sanke kegs are much harder to clean and sanitize unless you have a keg cleaning system. I'm thinking you'd need a pretty expensive pump to clean sanke kegs without removing the spear. Corney kegs are much easier to take apart and the big lid makes cleaning much easier.
I have been kegging with corneys for 12 years and just wondered/researching to see if there is better way...
I don't know much about sankes, hell... I don't even know what a "spear" is...
Any way that I go I am pretty sure I am going to buy a few firkins to make some "Real Ale" IPA's to age for a year or so...
