How To: Carve a Pumpkin Keg

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You’ll Need:

A Pumpkin

A Sharp Knife

A Large Spoon

A Metal or Plastic Spigot

($30 at KegWorks.com)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

STEP 1

Carve a lid out of a large pumpkin. Clean out the cavity, removing all the seeds and most of the pulp.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

STEP 2

Select a spot low on the pumpkin for the spigot, then use a marker to trace the spigot’s shank onto the pumpkin. Use a very fine knife to carve out the hole slightly smaller than the circle, keeping the cut as clean as possible. Pop in the shank & screw on the nut. (If your pumpkin’s thick, thin the pumpkin wall from the inside until the shaft fits.) Screw on the faucet & handle.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

STEP 3

Pour beer into the pumpkin, replace the lid, and pour!
