I am getting ready for this next brew day (probably Wednesday). One question, Do you use whole corriander seed or ground corriander seed?

Always crush or grind your coriander or you'll get very little flavor out of them.

I use either a rolling pin (they crush easily) or a coffee grinder.

Hey Bier,
I'm getting ready to brew this beer in a couple weeks. Would you still go with the US-56 (US-05) that you spec'ed or have you ever gone with actual Kolsch yeast to mix it up a bit? I bought both while I was there but I'm leaning towards using the Kolsch yeast.

If you have the Kolsch yeast...go with that.

Plan on a bit longer fermentation and keep it on the cool side.

I'm brewing a variation on this today. Same grain bill, but the only hops are an ounce of hallertau for 60, and I'm adding the zest of two lemons with the orange peel and spice addition. Fermenting with wyeast kolsch at 58.

I ended up doing the Kolsch yeast with a 1/2 gallon growler starter. I kept it between 58-60 degrees and was surprised how fast it fermented. It didn't chug along forever like I heard happens with Wyeast 2565. Maybe 3-4 days of airlock activity. I'm going to let it sit for a month, then transfer to keg for at least another month of lagering.

That 10 minute addition smelled fantastic! I can't wait to see how this turns out.
