    I can confirm that. My supplies are stored in my basement in a corner closet which is not insulated. In the winter the temp there creeps down towards 50*F, and it was cold enough to crystalize my open bottle of Rodinal.
    The developer still worked fine, careful just not to pour the crystals into the mix, as it might damage the film emulsion (although I doubt it). I extract my 20ml with a syringe.

    Apart from that, I've had Rodinal sitting on my shelf for two years in an opened bottle, and what comes out is a darkbrown slur, but it seems to work great anyway.

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY

    Happy Birthday Tim!!

    I don't know either, I just wanted to say happy birthday I have a bottle from 1971 that came with a C1 outfit. I keep threatening to give it a try so I can brag about oldest bottle etc,. Maybe this week while my bride is busy teaching VBS.

    I did some shots of the most beautiful "Prickly Poppies" Ive ever seen with the Mono Lake burn in the background on my way over to Geary's. Was thinking of you.

    1971 bottle opened

    This is an old glass bottle that came with my C1 Calumet outfit that brought me my Ries Tripod. It was still sealed until last evening. Came out very brown. It was warm in the darkroom so I used 5.25 minutes 1:100 for 5 sheets of Efke 25 in the Jobo 3010. Tim I was thinking of you and your recent (still?) burn of a favorite area. This is just S of Mono Lake on US 120. I've never seen such beauty set in stark sorrow.

    Jim, thanks for this post. Beautiful shot and nice tonality, the print must sing on this one. You may have come up with a new version of the "brown bottle flu" with that Rodinal.

    Looks like the burn in the Santa Ritas will be under control this week. We finally had rain last night, hopefully no more temps of 111 like we had sunday. Best, tim

    Jim nice shot. The tones are wonderful. I went over to the Rodinal article in the Unblinking Eye site. What interested me was combining Xtol with Rodinal. Does anyone have any thoughts or experience on this. Ed said in the article he used this with Delta-400, the film I use with good results.

    Good shot! All the non-Rodinal users should see this.

    Jim: That is one beautiful photograph... you have contributed to my day. I wouldn't care one whit how the neg was processed to get these results ... besides, your eye/composition was as important as your technical process. But I can confirm that at least IMO Rodinal was a damned fine enabler for the wonderful technical results.

    Honey, I promise no more searching eBay for cameras.
