As homebrewer I cannot recommend these 5L cans - corosion will appear after a while, some of top valves are one-use-only (basically you need to destroy the valve to get inside, so you have to replace it with a spare one). 

Also if you intend to use them for secondary fermentation, you could get into overcarbonated beer easily, which results in pouring just a foam through that tiny valve. 

I would suggest to take a look at proper KEGs, which are also manufactured as 5L or 10L (altough much more expesive, of course).
