Should it make a good beverage?

I got seabuckthorn seeds stratifying in the fridge. Should I have inoculated them first, as we do with peas and beans?

They have pretty much one-in, one-out digestive systems and trade nitrogen rich manure for the goodies in the fruit. Having tall fruit trees at the top of your property will passively fertilize downstream.
