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.
