Default adding spices in the keg

I need to add a bit of clove and coriander seed to 5 gal of heffe. The yeast I used gave me zero clove flavors and I also never put coriander seed in the boil.

Having never spiced a beer post fermentation, I was wondering how much clove to add to get a very slight flavor. I figured those who have made spice beers could extrapolate a guess for slight flavor.

I also need to add coriander, and usually in 5 gal I've used .5oz in the end of the boil. Think I should add .5 oz to the keg too, or more/less?

Thanks,
-J

Default

I would use sightly less than would normally have been added to the boil. I would not add it directly to the secondary. Boil a 'tea' with the spices, strain it and add the water to the secondary.
