i am about to brew a porter extract kit. i have 5 pounds of figs that i have been soaking in brandy for a couple months. i was going to add them towards the end of the boil in a grain bag to make for easier managing.
but after that... i was thinking about then freezing them after i take them out of the boil and then tossing the same figs into my secondary or my racking bucket.

any thoughts?

I'd add them to bulk age. I'd be afraid of the heat driving off some of that brandy flavor & aroma.

Well, here is what i wound up doing last night...
Followed regular kit instructions and added them in the last 5 of boil. Then this morning I pureed them and added the brandy (which I boiled in a pan for a bit to cook out the alcohol) and put the fig/brandy puree in the freezer. I am thinking I will add that puree to my bottling bucket when im ready to bottle...
