But there is the option of mahlab powder - ground cherry pit powder , to use with puree.

That's a joke, right? Please? Pretty please? :P

Good luck on your beer.

"if your only option for dried fruit is one that contains oil, give it a spray with Star San solution or fruit wash, followed by a quick rinse in chlorine-free water" (Tonsmeire, p. 235)

I'm not really sure what this would accomplish at all.  If there was bacteria present on the dried fruit, surely it was eating the fruit and working it's way into the fruit?

Our LHBS and the club did a buy from these guys, a 5 gallon pail of Baloton cherry concentrate that was split up.

They have dried cherries, but I don't know if they have pits, I expect not. Shipping to Belgium might be real expensive.

I thought Mike meant to get rid of the oil.

Now that makes sense; perhaps I should've read the post more carefully.

Swinging back and forth, back and forth... Again thinking about those dried cherries. Supplication has pinot noir flavor + sour cherries. I was thinking that dried cherries might be a better match with the wine than fresh ones. What do you think?

One could always go to a cherry eating festival and bring a sack to collect pits.

I'm afraid I will have to report you to the Belgian government for this. What is your real name, date of birth and passport number?

There's always Allagash, Jolly Pumpkin, Cascade, The Bruery, Russian River, and a few more I can't think of off-hand.

Maybe not Catillion but good none the less.

I'll just suffer through only having Logsdon Farmhouse and The Commons in my neck of the woods. Kind of a sour apocalypse

Ah yes, did I mention that I was at the Cantillon brewery in Brussels yesterday, and had a glass of Iris (straight from the barrel): a lambic made from pale malt instead of the usual combination of pils and wheat? It was awesome! ;-)
