    Ilford ID-11R Replenisher.

    I noticed on Ilford's website that the ID-11R replenisher has been discontinued. An alternative replenishing method is given on their site.

    Perhaps Simon will provide more details if he hasn't already for those who like to replenish ID-11.

    Hi Keith et al,

    We had to as it is no longer possible to manufacture the replenisher in such tiny numbers as are sold. Before we did this and as you kindly point out we have given technical information on an alternative replenishment method that works absolutely fine.

    Thanks Simon. For those who don't want to use the alternative replenisher mentioned in the PDF, will the published formula for ID-11R (D-76R) work equally as well as the now discontinued ID-11R?

    I should have read carefully before replying. Oops.

    D-76R would probably work, but I'm not sure that it is still available either.

    Replenisher D-76R

    Water (52C) 750 ml
    Metol 3 g
    Sodium sulfite (anh) 100 g
    Hydroquinone 7.5 g
    Borax 20 g
    WTM 1 l

    For T-Max films, mix 1 part of D-76-R to 5 parts of D-76 for each sheet (80 sq. in.) processed. Pour off any excess to maintain the original volume.
    For conventional films, add 30ml for each sheet processed, discarding used developer to maintain the original level if necessary.
    Note: Replenisher is for undiluted D-76 only. Diluted D-76 should be used once only.
    Capacity: Up to 7 sheets per liter undiluted. Extend development 5% for each sheet after the first. May be replenished with D-76R.

    This is interesting. I'm curious what it is that's in packet B that when reduced makes for a more suitable replenisher?

    Second, what are you guys generally replenishing per roll, 90ml - as suggested in the id-11 tech sheet?

    I've been playing with id-11 at 1+2 and 1+3, with tri-x and hp-5, and have generally liked it. I really prefer working with a replenished developer though, hence the interest, so any other thoughts on using id-11 like this would be appreciated.

    I know replenishment works, but is it a good idea in the long term? Would not dilute and discard give greater consistency?

    Yes and that is how I use D-76, but I know that some photographers like to replenish stock-solutions.

    Replenish systems are used where their is a steady Volume of Material to be processed. And where the Tank of developer is completely replaced by replenisher within a reasonable time period.
