      Thanks WB. I was going to cider it then make some cider vinegar but distilling sounds better.

        As an herbalist, the amount of cyanide in apple pips is next to negligable.  You would have to eat over a pound of pips to feel any adverse effects.  I am sure that you don't have any where that amount in your apple juice. 
        Manufactures of apple juice use a "distructive" type juicer and they process many more pounds of apples daily than you are doing.  If you still feel leary of your processing, toss it or make hard cider/apple wash and distill the wash.

      Hi guys

      Can I ask please, is there any known hazard from putting quartered apples through a destructive grinding-type juicer pips and all? I have just read that apple seeds contain cyanide.. Is it true that I now have about 15 litres of cyanide-laced apple juice that I should not dare drink?

      Carrying this to its logical conclusion, if true, could I ferment this stuff, distill and drink safely?

      Thanks and best
