How To Make A DIY Pumpkin Keg Tap
Step 1: Prepare Pumpkin
With a sharp knife, cut a lid from the top of your pumpkin, and with a spoon scoop out all of the pumpkin pulp and seeds. Keep the top and set aside.
Step 2: Attach Faucet
Near the base of the pumpkin, cut a hole slightly smaller than the shank that comes with the pumpkin tap kit, and attach your faucet.
Step 3: Serve & Enjoy
Fill the pumpkin with your drink of choice, put the lid back on top, pull on the faucet to serve and enjoy!
