Default Dry Fruit enough?

Hello I'm thinking of brewing a stout and was wondering if it would sour just by adding dry fruit to it in secondary (raisins/cherries) or would I need to add a Lacto, Pedio, Lambic or other commercially available yeast. Also not sure about how much dry fruit to use for a 5gal batch and how much beer it will yield given the fact that the dry fruit will suck up some volume.

Dry fruit alone won't make the beer a true sour.... you need other sorts of bugs to do that sort of thing. The amount of fruit is highly dependent on the type of fruit, style or beer, and what kind of flavor profile you're shooting after.
