I just realized that I forgot to put my Coriander in the boil!!!

Any suggestions on what to do now. I was thinking to either toast the coriander or microwave it to kill nasties then put it in the primary. But on second thought maybe it will be too strong a flavor if that amount is in there for 7-10 days during fermentation...

Any suggestions. This is a ten gallon batch and would like to get it close if I can.... Thanks Fellas

Take one cup of water and boil it. Add the amount of coriander you meant to add to your batch and boil it for the amount of time you intended to boil it. Then add it to the carboy when slightly cooled.

Why water down your beer. Take 1 cup of Wit wort and boil it with the coriander then add back in...

you could also steep it in your priming sugar solution when you get ready to bottle.

Skimming through Radical Brewing during lunch and saw another idea that might work. Soak the coriander in a shot of vodka before dumping them in.

This got me thinking (dangerous.) I know that hops are suppose to be naturally antibacterial, but I always worry anyway when dry hopping with a previously opened pack. Would soaking them in vodka be a little reassurance?
