    Rodinal - uncapped for three weeks...Doh!

    I did a dumb thing, and left my bottle of Rodinal concentrate uncapped for a 3 week or so period. It was about 3/4 full.

    Would any one expect this would ruin it or degrade it's power significantly? Maybe I should dump it, and get a fresh bottle before my next developing run....

    You know, usually I would say to dump it. But as this is Rodinal... I would shoot a roll of you favorite film-nothing important-and give 'er a go. I'll bet it's probably fine. Good luck!

    Given that my currently open bottle is just about as dark as my tea, I would think that you are fine to use it, but if you have something really important, I would test it with a roll of "shootin' around" film first.

    Marko,

    I would expect you can read? Or am I mistaken?
