I have not tried the recipe but the one I have says to coat the outside of the  pumpkin with hot wax by dipping it in hot water
with melted wax, then pouring the must into the pumpkin.  Then seal the top of the pumpkin with more wax. It says to let it
ferment that way four two months.

  That sounds like a lot of fun!! Could you please post a little more detail. Do you cover to top with anything to keep air from
getting in? Do you try and pasteurize the inside of the pumpkin to reduce the change of infection? Or do you go for la' natural
and just let her rip? Roughly how much volume can you get in a large pumpkin and how much honey do you add to it? Like I said it
sounds like fun and would like to get it right the first time.
