The analytical values are typical for each variety at harvest time but values can vary among crop years,
growing areas, growers, and with aging after harvest.

* Alpha Acids are determined by conductometric titration (EBC 7.4) in Europe. Alpha Acids for extracts are
determined by HPLC (EBC 7.7 )in Europe.
** Storage is percent transformation after 6 months at room temperature.
