I have a further question: Usually the stop bath turns a bit pink, and with a ferricyanide bleach, to ensure no carryover of developing agent to the bleach, I use a sulfite clearing bath and/or additional rinses between the stop bath and the bleach. Need I do this with the C41RA bleach? I'm thinking of turning my photography into a business, in which case environmental rules will require me to capture my wastes for later disposal - and I want to cut down on waste volumes.
My phototherm sidekick processor goes directly from the developer to the bleach. No stop, no wash, no clearing. If you want to go an extra step, a stop and a wash is more than enough.
