    Petition for entrance into the Grand Church of Rodinal

    Wanting sharp and edgy grain in 35mm to complement my large format work I just placed an order for a bulk roll of Tri-X and a 500mL bottle of Rodinal.

    Quick question on usage: do I dilute before drinking, or does it come out after drinking at the correct dilution?

    Any suggestions welcome:

    I'm looking at shooting it at 250 ASA, Rodinal 1:50, 20 C, 10 minutes. Four inversions in the first 30 seconds then one inversion every 30 seconds after that. I will have to get the time down as these will be for scanning, but negs that print well with a condensor seem to scan well for me.

    Complement or contrast?

    If I decide I'm not getting enough bite and jump to 1:25, how much will the times change?

    Ralph, I'm thinking a little of both. I've been carrying around what has to be one of the smallest 35mm cameras ever (Minox 35GL) and just keep running the film through it, but it's not what I want. The fridge is now empty of color film and I'm ready for some edge.

    A bulk roll of Tri-X and a bottle of Rodinal - sounds like a junkie to me. (Err, the only thing that got me off it was the 8x10)

    Alex, 8x10 is just a substitute addiction. I think you need 8x10 AND Rodinal.

    Nope. I've gone straight. Its 8x10, pyro, amidol, and azo that keeps me walking the line.

    Do someone knows, by any chance, where to buy rodinal in Brazil? Am I asking too much?

    Thanks anyway.

    straight

    I would suggest that you drink it as it comes from the bottle. Then drink as much water as you think appropriate. Keep careful notes so that you can recreate the appropriate dilution in the future. As noted on the MSDS it may make you edgy, grainy and grumpy. If after having personally distilled the Rodinal you find that you want more dilution, drink the distillate and more water. Again keep careful records. Lots of luck. Please leave us know how it comes out.
