Coriander is an annual herb that actually grows into what we know as Cilantro. The seeds have a citrus flavor when crushed, almost lemon like. Coriander seeds are sometimes used in brewing certain styles of beer, particularly some Belgian witbier and German Hefeweizens. When brewing wheat beers they are typically used with orange peel to add a citrus character to the beer.

How to brew with Coriander?

The average 5 gallon beer recipe requires 1 ounce of Coriander seeds which is about a hand full. Grind them up with a coffee grinder or crush them with a mortal and pestle (hammer and napkin) just before use. They should be placed in a hop bag and added to the boil when 15 minutes or less remain. It is not recommended adding coriander into the fermenter as it is has the potential of completely destroying beer by giving it an overwhelming amount of coriander flavor.
