    Adox Fine Print Vario Classic developed in Dokumol 1 + 6 for 3 minutes is what I use for everything.

    I can thoroughly recommend it if you like your prints to be neutral to cool.

    Best,

    Standard black & white printing:
    Ilford MGWT fiber semimatte for portraits.
    Ilford MGIV fiber matte for everything else.
    Replenished Ethol LPD.
    I think of toners as developers too; I use Moersch MT-3, Carbon, and Blue toners, and Harman Selenium toner.

    Lith black & white printing:
    Arista Lith developer
    Agfa Portriga Rapid
    Agfa Brovira
    A mess of old Kodak paper

    Ilford MGIV and Warmtone in LPD 1:3 or 1:4. Everything gets toned, atleast in selenium.

    Multigrade IV Fiber + Dektol. The Ilford developers give too warm a tone to the paper. While selenium cools it down, I like the cold, almost purple tone of the paper in Dektol with selenium.

    I use a wide variety of papers, I am gradually thinning out to Foma Chamois and Varient, Fotospeed Oyster, Ilford RC Warmtone (also, Tetenal Baryt and Bergger Prestige when I can). Probably @90% in Tetenal Eukobrom, as I prefer a neutral to cool result (and it seems to set the paper up for toning nicely), and @ 10% in Rollei Print WA (warmtone developer) that is available in convenient 300ml sealable pouches.
    I've never dedicated myself to just one or two papers as I enjoy the variety of interpretation that different papers bring. I've settled on Eukobrom for the past few years as a measure of some consistency and it seems to do a good job on anything I put into it - no off putting tones (in my eyes) that I have had with Multigrade developer, for example. I will also mention that I find Eukobrom to be good at dealing with longer developing times if I have slightly misjudged exposure time or contrast: for me I would consider 2 minutes as normal, whereas I have gone to 3 to 3.5 minutes comfortably to pull out a little more in the highlights without muddying the print.

    Fomatone & some Fomaspeed in LPD.
    If the lens doesn't read "ZEISS", then it just isn't.

    Ilford RC MGIV pearl or matte with Dektol 1:3

    I tried out Arista Premium RC Multigrad (Pearl) with Dektol as well. This paper does the work, although it curls a little. I will stick to it, though, because it's much more affordable than Ilford.

    Is Tetenal Eukobrom available in the US at all?

    Brian, I don't see any reference to a U.S. supplier on Tetenals website from my side of the Atlantic, seems to be Europe and India, but maybe someone over your way knows otherwise. Shame if you can't access it as they make excellent chemicals and the Oyster RCVC paper, I believe, is a superb, crisp semi-matt paper that can tone brilliantly.

    Regards, Mark Walker

    Check with Freestyle; they started carrying the Tetenal color film/paper processing kits. I see nothing on their web site, but just give them a call.
