    Is there anything on the bottle similar to the "To make 3.88 liters/1 US Gallon" that used to be on the old, 16 ounce bottles of US HC 110?

    Aha! In yet another look, with magnifier, the second page with MSDS info for a few other EU countries also peels up! The corner on that page has no peel-up indicator -- one is left to look for the less than paper thin edge. And behold under there is the base layer with mix ratios. It appears it is the traditional "North American" standard - B= 1+31 etc. They sure buried that, but thanks for prodding me to keep looking!

    Ah, my day is complete! (Well the above plus the 150 mm lens for my Bronica arrived.)

    I bought 3x the old 16 oz bottles around thanksgiving, and have only finsihed slightly over 1 bottle. I can't imagine ever finishing a 1 liter bottle, even developing about 12 sheets per week!

    This thread caused me some concern. I'm sure the contractor is making it to Kodak's specifications, and am not bothered with that or whether it's made in Germany or the U.S.A. I wanted to check my bottle of HC-110 just out of curiosity.

    Having inherited some of my mother's hoarding genes, I could not find the bottle. It really concerned me that a bottle of developer had disappeared somewhere in the house. I did eventually find it (I'd looked right past it originally); it's a round bottle made in the U.S.A. Expires 10/2013, though I don't think I need to worry about that.

    Well, a one litre bottle is only about twice the size of the old 16 ounce bottles, and essentially the same as the old, relatively rare, 32 ounce bottles.

    I for one am delighted to have my developer made by Tetenal. I suspect that Neopress HC is a close relative and I would bet that you could substitute it. Anyone have experience of that ? Does Neopress HC have the same longevity ?

    Kodak no doubt has the contractor make the product to Kodak specs, with auditing to ensure that none of the Kodak formula is sold other than as Kodak Product with Kodak receiving their share of the proceeds.

    When Kodak licensed it to Champion, they sold the factory as well, and many of the employees left Kodak and began working for Champion.

    1 Gal D-76 is all from germany now as well, and the catalog number changed to 516 0296. The plastic pouch feels different, which is how we noticed there was a change in the first place.

    5 gallon rapid is from germany now as well. Instead of the cubetainer bladder boxes, they're in large silly plastic jugs now. It's a mystery as to how you're supposed to dispense this stuff without either a pump or a giant funnel and helpers.

    Does anybody know where to buy empty, virgin 5 gallon cubetainers?

    Alternatively you could fit a tap near the bottom of a appropriate stiff container.
