Default How to add orange peel and coriander seed

I'm brewing a Witbier. How should I add the orange peel and coriander. In a hop bag or just add to the wort like the hops?

I added mine inside a muslin bag at flameout. .5oz of each, orange and corriander. Wish I had gone a full oz now, but still turned out very good.

I added mine to the wort as well. Remember to break up the coriander seeds before adding them.

+1 for directly into the wort. I ran the seeds through a food processor enough to crack the seeds. I used dehydrated orange peels, so I rehydrated them in a few ozs of water for ~5 minutes before adding them 5min before flameout.

Far better results you will get with fresh oranges, zest or grate them it the day of brewing, 2 to 8 oranges.

I add mine (1 oz for either bitter/sweet orange peel) and ~1/2 ounce of crushed coriander for the last 15 minutes. I put the coriander in a sandwich bag and gently pound it with a hammer until all seeds are crushed. Made many a Belgian batch with this and it works great.

straight to the wort. My AHS belgian wit is awesome after only a week in the bottle.

Try adding it to the secondary. I think it brings out more of the citrus.
