    Apparently some folks had problems with reading or finding the PDF file, but it's there online for quite some time.

    John,

    I'm very interested in getting more of a "dirty" result. I want some coffee stain, and some grain, and that general 'dirty' negative look.

    What recipe do you suggest I try?

    I wet print always. I only scan if I want to share digitally on here, or other networks. I think is sacrilege to shoot film and then process the image digitally - kinda defeats the original purpose.

    My film of choice is TriX. When the Kodak debacle happened last year, or year before I tried to move to HP5 but didn't get very far.

    Its been a year since I shot anything, and I just bought 5 rolls of 35mm and 5 rolls of 120 to get myself back into the groove of things.

    hi christopher ..

    i don't know, maybe i'd make the "standard" caffenol c
    maybe use the teaspoon measure method to make it easy for yourself
    add an extra scoop of coffee and washing soda and vit c
    ( more ingredients for the standard amount of water ... so its "a little stronger" ) ..
    and then a splash of your standard print developer ( stock, un-dilute ) ..
    i use ansco 130 because i have it lying around, but i am sure anything will work
    ( its just to give it a boost / kick )

    if you are using tri x, rate it at about 150 or 100 and bracket a little bit
    and develop your film by agitating it for about a minute, letting it stand 15 mins, agitate again
    let stand for another 12-13 mins and agitate again
    for about 27 minutes ... so you will agitate at the beginning, in the middle and at the end ..
    just to warn, you might get a little bromide streaking from the print developer ..
    but it should give you usable negatives ...
    i don't use stop bath, but rinse until the water you pour out is clear, and fix normally ...

    you probably won't have coffee stained negatives but you might get nice grainy/gritty film ..
    ( or it might look like you processed it in d76 or id11 )

    just make sure you get the right ingredients and as long as you do, you probably won't have trouble

    have fuN!
