Crack the corriander seeds or lightly grind in a coffee grinder, just until they are cracked & broken a bit. Use a potato peeler to peel a fresh lemon. Only get the outer, fragrent layer of the peel. The white inner peel is not fragrent, just bitter. This amount of lemon and corriander ends up a very mild backround flavor, in my opinion. Noticeable but not overpowering. You can get a nice digital scale at Harbor Freight(RT.30 & RT. 41) for $20, to weigh these very small amounts accurately.
Call Bob at Kennywood , you might need to order the #1010 yeast. You might need to scale the recipe down a bit as I do a 6 1/2 gallon batch. I usually get a full keg, plus 6-8 bottles.


Good Luck, have fun! Write a post and let us know if you try this recipe.
