Thanks for the responses...I now have a follow-up question before I prepare the pears or juice for the freezer.
1. Should I juice the pears now and freeze the juice or cut the pears up now and juice the pears when I get ready to add to secondary fermentation?
2. If I juice now, I have seen a couple different ways to juice...one is to run the fruit through a juicer (which I don't have currently) or the other is to cut the fruit up, place in a stock pot with a small amount of water (at least a cup) and bring up to a boil very slowly - once at a boil, boil for 5 minutes, then cool and strain, then freeze. Do you see any issues with the second method?
