Note that besides the coriander and orange peel listed here, Allagash has always added a pinch of another spice to the whirlpool—but that spice is a secret. Online speculation among brewers and fans over the years has included chamomile, pepper, cumin, and cardamom. Feel free to experiment, or to leave it out altogether.
