    Smaller negatives.
    Crop your negatives after intentionally composing with that in mind.
    Lith printing
    Paterson FX-39 film developer or FX-37 (mix your own) - beautiful sharp but prominent grain

    Rodinal does not give negs that are super grainy.

    Print-developer is more active than film-developer so you could experiment there, using a shorter time and/or similarly with a higher temperature. If you wanted high contrast at the same time (soot-and-whitewash) then of course under expose and develop for longer.

    Use a grain screen when printing and then if you change your mind you still have a fine grain image.

    Tri-X rated at 1000 developed in Acufine. I know it says "ultra fine grain", but don't believe it.
