looking for a developer ( or technique ) that won't provoke the monsters that live in this paper!
have been comparing test strips of agfa mc111 ( secret stash ) side by side and would, through much sincere labour, approach those glorious qualities.
i'm currently using a home mixed pq dev ( ilford's 68 ) as benchmark but will banish it immediately on your suggestion! :) enough about you, the test strips say .... agfa mc111 grade 2 = tetenal grade 1ish to give you an idea of the difference.
my intution says a dev of low ph, no hydroquinone and just metol ...
