I'm using frozen in mine.

So, allow primary fermentation to get well under way (say a week) and then treat like a dry hop. Defrost the raspberries, add to a sanitised secondary FV and squash with a sanitised potato masher. Syphon the beer from the primary on top and leave for a week or until all fermentation has stopped. Bottle like usual leaving the raspberry pulp in the secondary.

That's the plan anyway!!

so I've read you should always use fruit that has been frozen for beer. The freezing and defrosting breaks the fruit down and lets something or other happen that is good
Be careful with bits of fruit getting into the bottles as it seems to turn the beer into gushers!
