The inside of the pumpkin is pretty sanitary to begin with. I did not use any sanitation additives.

I did something similar this past season, more like a pumpkin pie wine. I used apple cider, maple syrup, piloncillo, pumpkin pie spice, raisins, pecans etc all in a wax sealed pumpkin with an airlock. Used WLP500. It was oustanding

Has this been tried without scooping out the insides? Say just poking a hole large enough for a funnel to get in there and filling it up that way? Not sure how much it would hold but should allow the pumpkin to last a bit longer I would think atleast

That's an interesting idea. I'm not sure if I'd want the flavor from the seeds in it though. Plus, most pumpkins have a lot of guts. So I don't think you'd get much liquid in a pumpkin that way...Hmm. It's worth considering though.

This was my post originally, and I have tried this recipe (with some minor differences) three times with great success. The last one was a little too much nutmeg, but has mellowed out a little over the year. This year I am totally going to try your suggestion. There are a lot of guts in there, but a lot of that is void space. I don't remember the seeds providing much of any taste (unless cooked). We shall see how it goes!

You could use a piece of wire with a hook bent into the end to fish out most of the guts through the small hole making more space for liquid.

I was thinking more pumpkin mummification as in the Egyptians removing the brain through the nose of the deceased and pouring resin and spices back in, hahahaha.
