Why, hes not welding a fermenter. If its a boil kettle or hlt or mashtun there is no reason for sanitary welding. Plus the only real difference is using a backpurge and slight different technique. If you can't weld you can't weld... If you can just weld it, the heat from boiling will kill anything that might be hiding in the trashy weld.
