    I followed the directions for making MYTOL in the chemistry section. Am I doing something wrong?. Adding the chemicals to to 750ml of water and then adding 1000ml/1lL of water to the solution. I did my regular dev. for XTOL (1:1) but the negs. were thin. It was not a time factor. Too much dilution;i.e. should the original 750ml just be brought up to 1L after the mixing??
    Thanks, Peter

    Yes. Usually, instructions say at the end "Water to 1 liter." You start with less than i liter to make sure that after you add the solids you don't wind up with more than 1 liter.

    Thank-you!

    Thanks Mr. Gainer- I knew something was fishy! and or too diluted. For anyone else trying this dev.it looked pretty good. but Pat's Vit-c developers are alot simpler;quicker; and results almost identical.
