Default Go-Ferm & Fermaid Dilemma

Will Go-Firm and Fermaid K do their job if added directly to the must without any prep (heating) prior to pitching the yeast?

If this is a problem how should I correct it (5 gals)?

Go Ferm is designed to aid in the rehydration process, and is supposed to be dissolved in the water you are using to rehydate your yeast. Fermaid K is a nutrient, and that goes in the must. Neither requires any heat.

Heat may actually destroy some of the vitamins in them.
