I enjoy the flavor of  Corriander in beer and the mash tun is the place to add it in IMO.
It diminishes the presence somewhat and kind of adds a flowery sweetness/aroma thing.

I've tried adding fresh cracked corriander seeds to the mash a few times but, didn't have much luck with it.  Seemed like most of the corriander characteristics were lost in the finished beer.  Kinda like adding hops to the mash...

Do you use whole seeds or pre-ground corriander?
I just put the whole seeds in with the grain before running the  mill...then really enjoy
the fragrant mash aroma...

It has to be the light, but this hydrometer reading on your stout looks a lot darker.  However, I'm itching to try some of your sour beers. I've been following your sour beer process.  I have some sour beers in the collection and want to make a trade.  I'm not to stoked about the shipping fees though.

Hmmmm...Well you are correct about the light...that is the same beer and I was kind of taking note of that as well.
The first pic was basically in the same spot on the counter..so not sure as to why, but very different appearance.

I noticed that awhile back and just accepted the lighting will always be slightly different even inside.
Glad to see other people taking gravity pics ;D
