I suppose I could cut the whole thing open if everything goes wrong, but I'd like to keep it to size to fit my 12" lid.

Agree with using a flap wheel or grinding wheel then flap wheel to just grind to your line or almost to your line and then clean it up with the flap wheel.
In my experiance it won't take you very long to do this.
Put a gal or two of water inside the keg and use the proper PPE and go for it.
