    I haven't thoroughly tested, but I'd expect its shelf life should be similar to that of D-76.

    Bear in mind, you're mixing up stock solution from bulk ingredients, so there is no reason to make more of it than you can use in a reasonable amount of time.

    A bunch of Nikons; Feds, Zorkis and a Kiev; Pentax 67-II (inherited from my deceased father-in-law); Bronica SQ-A; and a nice Shen Hao 4x5 field camera with 3 decent lenses that needs to be taken outside more. Oh, and as of mid-2012, one of those bodies we don't talk about here.

    Probably a bit better than D-76 as the pH is slightly less. Shelf life also depends on the type of plastic bottle.

    Six months easy in glass or plastic with air tight internal membrane.

    I gave up plastic stuff decades ago and most all the issues with dirty negs went away. It cleans. You can see if it is clean.

    Waterfilter and air filter and a clean darkroom will finish the job.
