Default Coriander..

Kinda curious how people use their coriander.

I've seen people crush it (rolling pin, etc), grind it (coffee grinder) and dump it in, in regular seed form.

For my last beer (orange/cascade) I just dumped it in as-is, but if I'm doing it wrong, i'd like to know before i continue down that path.

Lightly crush it with a rolling pin or a mortar and pestle.

I used it for the first time this past weekend and I crushed it, have to wait a bit to see what the results are.

I pop it (and most other spices) in a blender. With the coriander, it simply cracks open the shells and it's easy to filter out of the wort.

Well by me leaving it as-is, will I get any flavor from the coriander?

Probably - depending on the time you put it in the boil or how long you steep it. But it won't be nearly as much as if you pop those bad boys open. In my opinion, as long as they're popped open you're going to get close to the same amount of flavor regardless of the method.

I guess it depends on how much coriander flavor you want. I have never thrown whole seeds in so I don't know for certain.

Really to not sure since I've never made the orange/cascade pale ale recipe before. I'm guessing it should be fairly subtle, so I'm hoping i'll be fine.

They were added w/ 10 minutes left.


Glad I made the thread though.. i'll be crushing them from now on.
