For my ciders, I've always either pasteurized the juice when I've started with fruit, or else used pasteurized bottled juice.
It seems to me that frozen concentrate should be a quick & dirty (well, hopefully not too dirty) method for incorporating different fruit juices without the hassle and expense of juicing fresh fruit. Fresh fruit can be expensive around here!
So in regards to sanitation:
Is it safe to use frozen (no-preservatives-added) juice concentrate for the primary, without pasteurizing it?
Should I worry about boiling or pre-boiling the water used to reconstitute the concentrate?
How about commercially available frozen fruit? I've heard of brewers racking beer or cider onto frozen fruit in secondary with good results, and others who were concerned about sanitation.
Thanks for any expertise or experience!
