    These days, you can buy cheap electronic scales for under US$20. On amazon.com, search for "gram scale .01g", and you'll see many choices, mostly from American Weigh Scales (AWS). I have two and they work great.

    Way beyond monochome is a great book.

    It will give you the best bang for the buck of any B&W printing and paper and flim calibrating guide I have ever read.

    I don't recall it discussing developers other than standardize your process with the one(s) you are using.
    my real name, imagine that.

    The Film Developing Cookbook may be the easiest stepstone into making your own developers. But be careful. It's positively adictive and may seriously distract you from actual photography.

    "Way Beyond Monochrome", by Ralph Lambrecht (of APUG) and Chris Woodhouse, has a brief introduction to photographic chemistry, together with a formula for D-76/ID-11 and some other formulae for paper developers, etc, but recommends "The Darkroom Cookbook" by Anchell, and "The Film Developing Cookbook" by Anchell and Troop, for "the whole gamus of darkroom alchemy with all its opportunities and alternatives".

    +1 for the "Film Developing Cookbook." Tells you just about everything you would want to know.

    Jacobsen's "Developing" book looks pretty good. I just picked that up from the internet archive.

    I can The first Edition from 1940, left it in Turkey for pool-side reading though.

    Joking apart it's interesting as it shows how things had changed in respect to film dvelopment between 1940 and 1972 (18th Edition). Unlike many later authors Kurt Jacobson was a working Photo-chemist and was later active in developing new colour processes for Pavelle, so it's a book written with deep insight into all aspects of developing which won't be matched again.
