I have a base for a fruit beer in primary and I am going to add 4lbs of marionberry to the secondary. Do I need to steep them or can I thaw them out and throw them right in?

When you say steep, do you mean in hot water or in the beer itself? If it is a matter of sanitation you are worried about, you can pasteurize them in 170 degree or so water. Otherwise I would add them to the secondary and just rack the beer right on top.

I was thinking of just adding them right into the secondary, they came from a local commercial grower so I feel pretty same that they are clean, I hope..
