    Whats the best way to cut open a keg?

    So I managed to get some 50L kegs for HERMS (eventually) and im wondering the best and neatest way to cut them open? They are already de gassed. I have an angle grinder and dremel, but no other cutting powertools / fancy oxy torch etc. Also on a side note, considering kegs are always the...
