    Old Ilford ID-11

    Been reading the forum for quite a while but this is my first post. I found around 10 boxes of unopened Ilford ID-11 in my garage that I've had for about 10 years or so. I used to own a camera repair shop and this was left over stock when I closed up the shop. It's been in the garage the whole time but the garage isn't heated and temperature extremes can be anywhere between 30 and 90 degrees F. Would you mix it up and use it? Thanks for any input.

    I would not use it. Not worth it when you consider how precious negatives are. Though you could mix a batch and try it out on some test film.

    Does it show any odd color? If not, it's most likely fine. Ten packs of developer, assuming it works, can last you a long time, so if it looks ok it might well be worth a test roll.
    Trying to be the best of whatever I am, even if what I am is no good.

    Are the packs of powder caked? Is the dev yellow/orange once prepared?

    The packs aren't caked at all. Haven't mixed any to see the color. Thanks.

    If there is no trace of damp on the outer box you are ok I've used ID-11 from way back.

    The more modern packs have plastic inner bags.

    Ilford have a web page with current film times on it or use D76 times.

    Thanks for all the input. Think I'll shoot a roll of 24 and see what happens.
