Default ground coriander

I'm brewing a wit and the only coriander I could find is ground. The recipe is calling for 10 grams of crushed coriander. I don't want this to turn out to be a spice bomb, so how much of the ground should I start with? I'm thinking I could always add more post fermentation if it is too light on spice character.

I just went through my spices and I do have some coriander seed but I'm sure it is old. What should I do?

Well I guess I will go with the coriander seed and if the flavor is too light I will add more post fermentation.

Go easy on the coriander, I just did BM's Blue Balls Belgian Wit with the correct amount of coriander according to the recipe. At 3.5 weeks from brew day the spice flavor/aroma is still a little strong. I would def go with a little up front and then add more later if needed.

I ended up using 7 grams of ground at flame out for my 10 gallon batch.
