After many years contemplating to start developing my own film, I finally equipped my darkroom and bought the first batch of chemicals. And of course made a dumb mistake tonight! I got everything ready: canisters, chemicals measuring tools, etc. Started mixing the developer (d-76) and after a few minutes noticed that the powder is not dissolving. The problem is I followed the instructions to the letter! After scratching my head for a minute I realized that I followed wrong instructions! You see, if you don't pay attention, Kodak fixer bag looks very similar to Kodak D-76 bag. I mixed d-76 with cold water instead of hot! Right now I'm trying to bring the temp up to 50C. I hope it dissolves, because I'm very eager to develop that first film!
