    Thanks everyone. I flood my bottles with nitrogen so I'm sure I can get your recommendations to last.

    If you use plastic bottles the oxygen from the air can diffuse slowly THROUGH the walls and caps of a plastic bottle. So flooding with nitrogen helps but you really need to use glass bottles if you want really long life. I have stored both Xtol and D72 and D76 in small glass bottles (330ml) for an age test and even 4 years later they are colorless and work as good as new.

    Liquidol was designed to have long shelf life as a concentrate, and long shelf life and capacity in the tray. In my tests (posted here on APUG), it outlasted Dektol by over 2X.

    John, if Ansco 130 gets better with age, it is nice to hear but that means that it is changing!

    I've had great success with Ethol LPD, my last batch lasted well over two years. The trick is to keep the botles filled to the brim and cap tightly.

    Yes, IIRC about 1:20 dilution of Rodinal - but it's been years since I've done it. I think there's a thread on APUG about it. I don't remember what papers I used to try it. Probably Canadian Azo and Kentmere Bromide. The result was a somewhat cold toned print. I didn't continue because it was not very economical. I think there's also a thread about using Gainer's PC-TEA as a paper developer.

    Is this a neutral tone developer? Contrast?
