I am just guessing that those drums are not stainless, most likely they are just mild steel that has a coating inside...sort of like a regular "can of corn".

Unless they are stainless, they are of not much value in brewing. HDPE plastic barrells are usefull for large scale brewing and can usually be had pretty cheap.
