    Your Rodinal is probably fine, but do a test roll as suggested. I recently finished up a bottle of Rodinal, partially used, that came in a glass bottle and had a rubber cork/stopper. Who knows how old it was? It worked just fine.

    It's sort of part of the scenery that you can find some polite banter with Marko about the place huh? part of the charm I'd say.

    Have a go with it though! Worst case scenario, interesting-ness never hurt anyone.
    And I really should try some Rodinal one day, all I've had a crack at is Xtol and T-Max so far, and Xtol's meant to have terribly keeping properties on prolonged exposure to air from what I've read.
    The Analogue Laboratory, or 'so you built a darkroom in an old factory in the industrial zone'.
    Blog thing!.

    Worry less. Photograph more.

    Most developers don't do well when exposed to open air for prolonged periods of time. XTOL's real problem is twofold: It sometimes goes bad rapidly, and when it goes bad it doesn't darken or show any other obvious signs to warn you of its "badness."

    FWIW, it took me slightly over a year to go through my first (and so far only) 5-liter packet of XTOL. I mixed it and kept it in 1-liter glass bottles, splitting those into smaller bottles whenever I needed to open one. Thus, XTOL can last a good while when properly stored -- but some of the tales of "XTOL sudden failure" relate to problems developing shortly after it's mixed.

    Just a tip: I find it easier to have a big bag of marbles in the darkroom. As bottles of chemicals get used I drop marbles into them to bring the fluid level to the top of the bottles.

    On our school we have a Agfa paper saying that Rodinal lasts 6 months after the bottle has been opened. I don't know if this is true, but I have developed some films with some old Rodinal that was really dark brown, and the negatives did get really muddy tones. But it could be other causes for this though.
