    Instead of developer I accidentally added 150ml of hypo to my 2000ml bottle of replenished developer. Is it toast?

    I know that I can shoot a test roll, develop, and look at the results but maybe someone that knows the answer can save me some time.

    Toss it and start again.

    Definitely toast, start again and be more careful. I've used replenished developers for over 40 years,l I started while at scholl, and with a little care it's a great way to work.

    Welcome to APUG BTW.

    "monobath"! :wink::whistling:

    Sadly, I would say you should toss it.
