It may be good to check a local brewery in your area, if there is one.  They may have some old kegs they will sell you.  That's how I got mine.  And on that note, please realize the $45 deposit paid on a sankey keg doesn't come close to paying for that keg.  It still belongs to the brewery.

unfortunately I am in miami or i would sell one of mine. also, i offer one thought about getting started. I transitioned directly to 10 gallon all grain from the 5 gallon extract in the kitchen. i bought a whole set up from a retired home brewer and it had the 15.5 gallon keggles. Unfortunately, using a keggle that size for boiling a 10 gallon batch is just a bit on the small side of things. It works but there is very little margin for getting to a boil without the boil over. I am considering a 20 gallon brew pot instead, once I save some money.
Beer is an ancient beverage that has been consumed as part of a balanced diet for centuries - it contains the goodness of sprouted grain extracted into rich liquid and fermented to produce a nutritional 'liquid cereal' beverage.

You'll catch a lot of grief for using a keg although the recycler's / junk yards will scrap them out for stainless or aluminum and it's okay.    :o
