Default Cherry addition advise in Quelque Chose Clone?

Hi all, Next week I'm adding 6lbs of sour cherries to my Quelque Chose clone. What is the best way to sanitize them, currently they are pitted and frozen. I was thinking of just heating them without boiling the crap out of them. Not sure if there is a better route.

Also: Does it matter if they float? Should I keep the carboy cold once I added them?

Don't bother sanitizing them, I assume they were rinsed before frozen, if not you might rinse them off.
They will float, it doesn't matter, personally, I would put the kriek portion of this brew in a bucket and punch them down monthly.
Keep them at fermentation temp for a month, then you can cool them, or not.
Blend with your brown "to suit your taste" after several months, bottle.
Newer, better, more streamlined sig as per the forum police.
