Stability

Stability refers to how much of a hopís desirable yet volatile alpha acids remain intact after a fixed period of storage.

Careful storage of hops in a cool, dark place sealed from oxygen will help to prolong the presence of the alpha acids.

Frequently, the stability of hops are quoted against a six month storage period.
