    I mixed up the 1l package of Dektol I bought by mistake last week. I ran some Tri-X 400 in it. 4 minutes @22˚c ... I like the grainy results .. I think I'm gonna buy some more Dektol :smile::smile:

    Thanks for everyone's suggestions :wink:

    I'd like to dip some Presto 400 in it, but I cannot find any dev times. Anyone got a ballpark figure? How similar are Tri-X & Presto?

    Nice looking images! Did you develop in stock solution OR dilute it 1:1 or 1:3?

    Thanks! I developed stock, from powder. I prefer liquid since I can measure it out and dilute it. With powder that's much more difficult.
