Lea Formula 3 is the most stable collodion known to man.  It takes about 5-6 months to ripen, but once ripe it will give you consistent plates for months and months.  12 to 18+ months is not unreasonable for this collodion to remain stable.  So if you are not the type of person who uses collodion quickly, this is a great collodion to have on hand.

Advantages of a stable Collodion: uniform photographic characteristics throughout its life, reduced variation in a process fraught with variation, and no waste due to discarding old material.

In choosing a collodion, a photographer should be guided by the purpose for which it is to be used.  As with most things, a solution can be found that fits all desired uses, but it will not be as thoroughly suited as one intended for a specific use.  Things to consider:
What will you be shooting?
Where will you be shooting?
Amount & type of light?
Will you use up the collodion quickly?
Do you want a collodion that is stable & consistent over a long period of time?
