I would go with bronze then. The valve will be bronze, so that at least eliminates galvanic corrosion issues at that point. There isn't really much choice, since using stainless steel would add a third metal to the mix and complicate things that much more.
Also, as RXBot points out, bronze would be far simpler to machine as it is softer and easier to work.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
