If its a mini keg with a sanke tap, yeah, you could refill it, but a corny keg is SO much easier. I would say stick with those

I have used this site before.

http://stores.kegconnection.com/StoreFront.bok

Thier "B" grade kegs are like $90 for 4, and all you have to do is clean them up, replace the seals (like $2) and maybe reglue the tops and bottoms a little. They hold pressure, thus are functional. There are other deals around, but these are they guys I have used before.
