See what happens when enough home brewers get together on helping another with an 'issue'??

Hope that he's going to drill and tap them for you. Or somehow get them to secure to the screen... Or maybe he'll be able to weld them to the screen for you...

You're overthinking it. Keep it dry when you're not using it and it shouldn't be a problem. If it really does bother, you just use some silicone to keep them apart. Washers or o-rings would both be effective.

Corrosion doesn't happen instantly and it needs an electrolyte (often water) to work through. The short time you are using it during brewing should be fine.

True, but its kind of fun to have custom made parts too.

You could use nylon washers instead of (or in addition to) the SS washers. If you are worried about nylon, you can get some sort of silicon cookware and cut insulators out of it. I'm thinking that it will be a long time before galvanic corrosion would be a problem, though.
