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.
A painting says a thousand words. But a painting while on good mead just looks funny!

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.
