I hope I am putting this in the right section. I just started my first sour brew with a friend of mine. We made a wheat beer with wlp1 and then racked it into a 5 gal oak barrel with about 6 pounds of whole cherries (pits and all). We froze the cherries the night before and had to kind of mash them through a funnel because the bunghole was kind of small so they got broken up a bit more. We threw some british brett in there and some lacto.
I hadn't really thought about it until today but I know cherry pits have cyanide in them. Should I be worried about a high amount of that getting into the beer? I figured it's probably not a huge issue as many belgian brewries who make fruit beers use whole cherries and because if it was a real issue there would be warnings everywhere about it.
I am really just curious of people's opinions.
