I really dislike acronyms. Generally, if this lumber is all quarter sawn and has relatively straight grain with few knots it will already be relatively stable. If it is four quarter lumber (1 to 1.25 inches thick) and has been stickered in a dry garage for one year it is probably ready to go. Since a moisture meter is not available I would keep this wood stickered since it’s condition is still unknown. I live in the deep south and buy a lot of freshly cut green lumber from a local mill. Most of the time, I sticker this wood and store it in a car port. Four quarter wood generally is dry enough to work in about a year. I hope that this answers your question.
