    I wouldn't drink Rodinal, but the developing agent in it, which I believe is p-aminophenol, can be made from acetaminophen, commonly sold in the US as Tylenol. Can't imagine it would be that toxic to brew yourself, probably no more toxic than common household chemicals. Jnanian makes his own developer from coffee, washing soda, and vitamin C, all common things that can be found in a home.

    Here's a recent eBay auction supposedly selling kits to mix your own:

    $7 + shipping for a kit that makes 250mL of stock? Wow, that's no cheaper than a bottle of the real thing, if you can get it.

    It's more expensive as Rodjnal sells for $13 at 500ml, his would be $14 for 2 packs (500ml) and you have to mix it, and it's probably not Rodinal it's probably that Tylenol/aspirin whatever it is version... Lol

    No bottom goo, no problems ever in fact.

    I quote myself to note that I finally finally finished the bottle tonight ... and it was dead as a doornail, not even a whisper of an edge code on my Acros, less than a month after I last used it when it produced perfectly well developed negatives.

    So, in my house at least, APH09 lasts a quite long time, but not indefinitely, and then dies suddenly



    The eBay kit, I imagine, is being produced and sold by KennyE; he ought to be careful, calling it Rodinal and advertising it with a picture of a Rodinal bottle ...

    Stone was not talking about under funded pensions being safe. That's a big difference.

    Personally I think Kodak Alaris will fail as a film producer, but not as an entire entity. So the KPP retirees should be OK in the long run.

    Another Rodinal pop-up. Thread put on ignore list. No contempt towards Rodinal fanboys intended. Good luck with that. If that stuff be your preference and they still make it these days, I'm glad for you. I'll use my Microdol and if I want Rodinal effects, I'll just sprinkle salt and pepper on my negative before enlarging it.
