    N 113 is supplied as a powder, I use the larger ones which are 10 litres, smaller ones like 1 l could be available, but 10 litres is more economic. It is Phenidone/HQ type and has good keeping properties.
    You can use it straight, means powder dissolved in the given amount of water, and reuse it several printing sessions and replenish lost volume with more N 113, my way. Excellent all-round paper developer neutral to cooltones.

    Colour? We can always use an airbrush later...

    'tween black and white, there's a lot of grey in sight.

    I've been looking into using this developer too. Just mixed my first batch of 5 litres, in one litre plastic bottles.

    Any experiences about the life of partly used working solution?

    I've used Calbe N113 as my print developer for a while now and am fully satisfied with it. The keeping properties of the working solution in a tray are excellent. Also, it's very clean-working and the odour is rather faint.

    I've mostly used this developer with Ilford MGIV RC. Longish development times in N113 give warmer image tone to MGIV than the Kodak Polymax paper dev that I previously used.

    I've also developed some Foma RC and a lot of expired Ilfospeed RC with N113. The image tone is neutral-cold on these papers.
