    How long will this last?

    I mixed up a batch of Rodinal (50:1) in a 1/2 gallon jug for an afternoon of developing. One thing led to another and I didn't finish the session.I have about 1/3 of the working solution remaining.Just how long will it last in a tightly sealed plastic container?

    Thank You

    I'd say no later than the end of the day, but I've never pushed it so I can't say for sure. Once it is diluted you have to use it up quickly

    Mike, I'd chuck it. Rodinal is cheap, water is even cheaper. It's not worth risking those precious images on.

    If you want to find out, do it on some film you can afford to botch. Then you will know and can tell all of us who really do not know.

    Hi G.G
    That might be worth a try.I'll shoot 1/2 roll of FP4+ and develop it in 2 day old Rodinal (working solution).
    These particular rolls were near & dear. Road trip with my old college pal.

    I'd go along with Jim on this. It's as cheap as chips, and not worth risking a film in.
    Regards Dave.
