Here's another example. This one calls for .75oz. All may be well and good I'm just looking for someone with experience using coriander to confirm that the volume is right. (not that I don't trust my scale)It seems to be a bit much figuring a 5G batch, maybe it was meant to be 1/4 teaspoon.
Thanks, that's what I was looking for. My digital scale is accurate, I guess my coriander is just light. They are bigger in size than some of my other spices. These are bigger than BBs. So, that probably accounts for the variance.While it may be too late for the OP... I just went a weighed (on a digital scale) the whole coriander I have and 2 Tablespoons added up to 3/8 oz... 3 Tablespoons was 5/8. There is probably a little room for error since the scale only displays in increments of 1/8, but it should give some frame of reference.
Remember, take it easy on the spices unless you are absolutely sure you know how they will affect the flavor... underspicing is much more preferable than overspicing... in my opinion at least. Coriander is powerful stuff.
