Other Fermentables / Cranberry cider help

Beware that 'bag' is not a standard unit of measure.  Also, if you freeze them you really don't need to chop them.

So 18lbs is too much?

Rinse, freeze, chop in food processor when ready.  the freezing will break the cell walls and make the chopping easier.  No need to cook.  I estimate you will need 5-6 bags of whole berries.
Wow that much, guess I under estimated, thanks.

I want to make a cranberry cider, but I'm not sure how to proceed.  I have 5 1/2 gallons in primary right now.  I want to add 6 pounds of cranberries to the secondary.  Do I purée them?  Cook them?  Purée them, and cook them, or just heat to pasteurize?  Also how long do I leave in secondary?
