Default ID this gunk please

I've looked around a bit and can't find a photo of beerstone inside a keg so I'm hoping somebody can help.

I bought an old sanke keg that had what felt like 5 gallons of ancient coors light in it. Nasty stuff. I cut the top off of it to make a keggle. Inside I'm seeing streaky white crust that I'm assuming is beerstone. I don't know what else it could be but I thought I'd post a pic so somebody who has seen it before can confirm.

Thanks for the hand!

beer stone alright. use bar keepers friend with stainless wire brush, or green scrubber. or soak in powder brewery wash, or oxyclean type products. NO CHLORINE!!

Some form of acid based cleaner (Acid #5) will make the job much easier.

Or you could do what I do and just not worry about it...
