Yes, the output should have an entropy of 512 bit (or slightly less). Using it as a key is a good idea. If you want to generate more than 512 bits of key material out of the 512 bit you need to use a Key Derivation Function (KDF). You do not need to stretch the key, because it is no password and has a high amount of entropy - enough to make any brute force ...
