I've written a short primer on kegging. You can read it here.

It is possible to keg with the large Sanke kegs, but it's harder and you have to make more beer to fill them up. Personally, I wouldn't take on that task. The corny kegs are much easier to deal with.

The reality is, there just aren't too many shortcuts to kegging.

Prosit!

IMHO if you can afford and find a good resouce, go with the Corny's. Find on E-bay or local shop, rebuild your own, etc. 5G size is perfect and you can use these things for secondary, for bottling "buckets", etc. They are SS, clean up well, and will last longer than you!

It is possible, as they are moving away from the Corney kegs and toward the syrup bag systems.

However, you are going to have to spend the time and money disassembling them, cleaning the parts and replacing the seals. Many have suggested that the $30 or so you'll spend on a used reconditioned keg is well worth the time and money you'll save not having to get it ready for prime time.

I have a local Pepsi distributor right near by...I've called them 1,000 times! I get transferred to somebody and then leave a message only to be blown off every time. I'm thinking of just jumping the fence one night and hi-jacking a trailer! To answer your question, I'm not sure too many distributor's are willing to sell to the typical "Joe". Google or jump on e-bay...you can find some sweet deals.
