I'm sorry, this just seems like a bad idea to me. Admittedly I have not had a 
lot of experience with brewing but something just doesn't sit right with me. 
I think that my problem is that how to you keep the pumpkin from 
deteriorating before the brew is finished. It would have to be the freshest 
possible and then  it probably wouldn't be big enough to hold all of the 
batch. I mean I've had my fair share of experience with pumpkins and I know 
that unless specially treated jack o'lanterns do not last very long. I 
noticed that you suggested using bleach to make it last longer but isn't that 
running the risk of poisoning your brew?
