I have 3 lb of Vintner's Harvest raspberry puree on hand. I also have 5 gallons of blonde ale that's done fermenting and that I'm planning to bottle tomorrow. I want to bottle half of it as-is, and rack the other half into a second fermenter on top of 1.5 lb of the raspberry puree. I'm planning to brew an American wheat beer in a couple of weeks, and I'd like to do the same thing with that beer. Is there any way to keep half the puree sanitized/sterile for a couple of weeks? Would it work to put it in a sanitized Ziploc bag and freeze it?

It ain't all burritos and strippers, my friend.

As long as you keep it sanitary, I think that should work. Lots of people freeze, then thaw, whole/chunked fruit (which is theoretically less sanitary) before use.
