Default Is a small amount of stems in grape wine ok?

So I started my first couple batches of wine with concord grapes from our garden, yeast ro water and sugar. I made 2 one gallon jugs of it. It seems to be coming along well started fermenting and airlocked now. I was just wondering if having a few of the stems left in there may be not good because of methanol... im very new to this and just wanted to try it for some fun and because I had the grapes available. I took most of the stems off but as I went thru the whole gallon I kinda got lazy towards the end so there are some grapes with a bit of stem still stuck in! Thanks for any info!

It won't cause any methanol issues. It might not taste as great but it won't harm you.

Only problem with stems is they taste a little acrid.
