Title: Corriander...general guidelines
Post by: astrivian on June 13, 2010, 01:52:36 AM
Hey all,

I am thinking of adding some corriander to my Trippel recipe but don't know where to start. What is a good amount for a 5 gallon batch?

I would start with around .25 oz. That's probably on the low end, but if you decide you want more you can always add it in the fermenter.

Also, don't get it at a homebrew shop or regular grocery store - look for a dedicated spice shop (Penzey's) or Indian/Asian grocery. Old coriander tastes like hot dog water; ask me how I know.

I got neat/good results putting 5-7 grams of crushed corriander in the Mash.

I don't care for spicing a triple but if I was going to it would be 5g or less.

I have a saison in secondary right that was mash spiced, didn't notice anything during the boil but damn the mash smelled great.
So in a couple weeks I'll see how it worked.
