Default Freezing AJ

It's apple season here now (New Zealand) and prices are cheap, so I thought I'd get some, juice them and then freeze the juice until I'm ready for it. Would I be better to add the pectic enzyme before I freeze, or should I leave it until I am ready to make cider and the AJ has defrosted? I also though that I would add the Campden after defrosting. Am I on the right track?

if you have the time you may as well do the pectinase addition ahead of time. I would add sulfite before freezing - freezing does not give 100% protection from oxidation - sulfite helps to limit oxidation.
