    The suggestions of other developers are good, but none will "substitute" for 130. It's about the glycin. The suggestions for ordering glycin in a large amount and mixing and keeping it in solution to preserve it are the best ones, if you are truly looking for 130 like properties.

    Just to chime in on Glycin, I just ordered via telephone from Photographer's Formulary today a Pound of Glycin which cost 80 USD. Compared to Hydroquinone that is a lot of money. But if you figure you use a liter of working solution and you only use 5 grams of Glycin that means it costs something around a dollar a batch for the Glycin which isn't enough to worry about too much but then the issue is definitely storage if you want to keep it bright and fresh. However I just tried it out last week with Glycin that was stored room temp in a drawer for something like 2.5 years and it was a light brown color but worked fine.

    PS Also right now at Photographers Formulary they have free shipping for a pound of Glycin.

    Ansco 130

    I don't know if "brown "glycin means itsd bad but photographers formulary in Montana(usa) has their own 130 developer pre-packaged in a box at a very fair price. I don't know if its any easier to get into Australia though.
    No escaping it!

    Looks as though I will have to 'bite the bullet' and order more Glycin. Last time the shipping charge was more than one third of the total cost for just 100 grams. I'll order a larger amount this time.

    Thanks all

    The powder does in fact freeze well.

    I have frozen glycin for almost three years. I then used it not only in Ansco 130, but also in a film developer with only the glycin as the developing agent. YMMV.

    I agree with the Ilford Warmtone suggestion. It's not quite the same, but pretty close. Well diluted ID-78 is probably a close match to the Ilford Warmtone.

    Yes, dilute it, and you can also add some more Potassium Bromide (up to 3 or 4 times the 4.5 grams that the recipe calls for). This will further warm the tone.
