    Art,
    If you do a search here and on Photo.net, you'll find quite a lot of futher research on the subject.

    LOL Like I even knew you could do this! Fascinating. I think I'll give some of the recipes a try.

    There's nothing about colour film. Anyone give that a try?

    Less than 12 hours, and I'll be developing my first roll of Tri-X in Caffenol. The instant coffee and Na2CO3 is packed and ready for the trip to the darkroom tomorrow (I live 15 km away from the darkroom I use).

    I'll post a neg scan or a print later...

    See ya!

    There's another thread that says you can use urine as well. Who the heck was the first one to think of that? And why would anyone else imitate it?
