    You dilute the concentrate 1+19 for film use and 1+9 for paper. It's a universal developer that works for both film and paper.

    Try shooting a test roll at box speed. Cut the film in thirds, start developing the first third at 4 minutes @ 20 degrees C / 68 degrees F.
    - If you get too much contrast, develop for less time.
    - If you get too little contrast, develop longer.

    Universal deve3lopers like Suprol are by their vary nature compromises between a film and a paper developer. Another example would be Kodak Dektol. The increased activity of these developers tends to emphasis grain. Despite what Champion may say this developer works best only for prints or MF/Lf film. The OP does not say what format he shoots but for 35 mm film I would recommend something like Ilford ID-11.
