Yep, using the methods outlined in the soldering-stainless thread. I originally drew up this design for a kettle, but it would work equally well with a fermenter. To make it rotating, you use a teflon gasket and just loosen the clamp a bit to turn, then tighten it back down once it is in place. Since the solder fills most, if not all, of the gap from the dimple, there shouldn't be much room for infections to hide.
