What type of solder do I need for sweating my copper diptube for my keggle?

I know lead-free, but I have seen silver solder...which should I use.

I'm upgrading from a 3/8 compression fitting w/soft copper diptube to rigid copper w/false bottom. I'll also need the solder for the feet on the false bottom.

I use silver solder and haven't had any problems. As long as it says lead-free on it, you're okay to use it.
