I have the opportunity to pick up a huge fridge, 3 commercial kegs with lines, co2 tank, and 3 taps. All already set up.

I know people prefer cornies, but can I pass this up?

Sweet deal! You can easily convert the system to cornies and convert the Sankey kegs to Keggles.

+1 on what Ed said. If the fridge is "huge" like you said, once you scale down from the Sankeys to the cornies you can use the extra space for finer temp control on fermentation, which is a little more difficult in summer if you don't have a large refrigerator. You're going to have some nice tasting brew! I have noticed a remarkable difference in mine just having the fermenter in the basement (which is 60 F, rather than 70 F in the upstairs closet)...In addition, just because my basement is 60 doesn't mean the fermentation is happening at the optimal temperature. I'm sure if there was a fridge I could store even ales in for fermentation their taste would be even better. On top of all this you have happened upon one of the more difficult things to find when brewing. Cheap brew kettles (Once you convert the Sankeys).

That picture is priceless.

You can also buy a kit and reuse the Sanke kegs and keg in them. I kits are a bit expensive but able to be done.

I was going to suggest using them to keg his beer but I heard cleaning and sanitizing Sankeys is a pain in the you know what.
