Default Making a wit - only have ground Coriander

Should I just not use it?
Am brewing right now...steeping.
Was preparing my ingredients for the boil and reading up, and realized I should've used whole (crushed) coriander. Is it futile to try to use the ground? I don't want to end up w/ beer that tastes like hotdogs. Any suggestions for using the ground coriander?

Here's my recipe:

Flaked Oats
Flaked Wheat
Wheat DME (6lbs)
Perle Pellet Hops
Wyeast Forbidden Fruit
Fresh Orange and Lemon Peel

Thanks in advance.

I'm still pretty new so take this for what it is. I personally don't think I would use ground coriander. Coriander is one of those spices that is tricky. Using it a lot in cooking I've found the ground stuff really makes its way thru the dish. Unless you REALLY like coriander I would be worried about the spice overpowering.

Just my 2 c worth, like I said I'm still fairly new. Perhaps someone else has more experience with ground coriander.

Cheers!

Thanks. That's where I'm leaning.

Any update here? I have a whole bottled of corriander spice, but no whole seeds was thinking about using it in a Belgian wit.

I brew Wit at least once a month. I start with whole coriander, but grind it to near powder with my corn mill. I have gotten a stronger effect than with crushed whole, but no negatives and no "hot dog".

I keep a wit on faucet all the time. I use about .2 oz whole coriander seed that I run through the spice mill until powder. It gets added for the last 5 minutes of the boil along with .5 oz sweet orange zest.

I skipped the coriander all together. It came out great. Only a couple bottles left...

I just brewed a similar wit recipe. I'm still a rookie brewer, only a half a dozen batches under my belt. Did you steep your flaked wheat or mash it. I simply steeped my flaked wheat for 30 mins in 1 gal of water. After the 30 mins I added 2 more gal of water and my LME and proceeded with my boil.

Is this incorrect and will it grossly affect the outcome of my brew. My OG was 1.048.
