Look online "Yellow Pages" for sanitary TIG welding or brewery fabricators. You want the inside of the keg to have an "inert gas" envelope so it does not crystallize. The weld should look smooth just like the exterior weld.

those look great - I wish I was close enough to be in the club, but Portland is a bit a way.
