I am sorry but I love the air lock on th pumpkin. I read of a recipe that said to use a pumpkin like that but had you encase the pumpkin in sealing wax until fermentation was done. I like your idea better.

Yeah, the airlock turned out to be fairly useless. It stayed off balance, but never really got bubbling. Finished out, though and had a nice krausen going. I was afraid the yeast would chew through the pumpkin. There was a small gash in the flesh on the bottom that started to drip a bit toward the end, but overall I declared victory, siphoned it into a couple of 1 gallon jugs for aging and whammy, mead.
