    It is stronger than me - I must joke a little:

    To minimise the grain use Adox CMS 20 developed in Adotech - and use Rolleiflex with planar lens, not Pen F

    Whole wheat flour? Are you trying to make gravy?

    Wouldn't wheat flour add "grain?" Sorry, that just jumped out at me.

    I find a presoak with constant agitation in granular silicon carbide does wonders for smoothing out this combination.

    Or failing that, the smoothest results involve use of a ferricyanide or EDTA-based developers. Not a grain in sight!

    Ah! Did overlook the bit about the whole grain flour.

    Another thing I've experimented with (accidentally) is processing normal B&W film in a normal C41 process. Absolutely grainless.

    (My autocorrect actually suggested brainless instead of grainless. )

    Use cake flour instead. It gives a much lighter grain.
