I thought it was funny. One of the slightly ridiculous things you do just out of curiosity, like trying sassafras extract or canned quail eggs.

Pumpkins are ready where I am. yesterday I drove by a patch and thought what can I use these for. Can't lie, I got a bit excited when I saw this. Fermenting in a pumpkin.

Just a little update on the lemon juice idea ..... it works too well, I tried it and the pumpkin started getting soft before there were any signs of decay. I could have lost the whole thing if I had waited a few more days before I checked it and noticed that the lid had shrunk

I had to move my mead from the pumpkin to regular fermenting bucket today. The bottom of it was all soft, and some liquid was on the counter under it. I'm going to give it a couple weeks, then check on it. I hope it isn't infected with anything, though I think that's likely at this point.

Last year's attempt didn't work out well. Something nasty, green, and disagreeable grew in it at some point (ew). This year I'm going to do a few things differently: using a whole nutmeg, cinnamon chips, and whole allspice. That way, when I rack it, I won't have so much free floating spice material (I think that was the core of my icky growth...looked like it). And I will coarse-filter it, at minimum, if needed after adding clearing agents. Here's hoping its ready to try at Christmas :-)

I plan on starting this next week or the week after just in time for Halloween. I just haven't decided on the exact recipe yet. I plan on doing 2 pumpkins and use the as decorations for Halloween. I also think I'll boil all the ingredients cool then transfer to the pumpkin. Possibly add more clove to the secondary

I started mine yesterday. 5lbs of orange blossom in just under 2 gallons. I've been waiting for almost a year to try this.
