This is pretty amazing. I decided upon 1:50 just last month. First because the time for AristaEDU-Ultra 100 is so short in 'B' that it's not recommended (and kinda short for PanF+, too) Secondly to make the math simpler for 1/2 litre & 1 litre, and lastly for economy.

Who knew there could be such a broad opinion base as to what is simple? 1:50. 1:37. 15:1000 all are just starting points on the way to seeing what works for each individual.
If it takes me a half an hour to explain dilution ratios, I probably need to work a little on my teaching skills.
In the interest of KISS, when I took 1 oz. of HC110 goop, and added it to 31 oz. of water, I got one quart of useable film developer.
So, if I choose to go 1:50, and have a tank that holds 500 ml of solution, and I wish to fill the tank, how much goop do I use and how much water?

John -- you would need 10 ml of HC-110 "goop" and 490 ml of water.
Which technically is 1:49, not 1:50, but the difference surely wouldn't matter.

Yeh, that's what I figured. 1:49. 1:50, as we say hereabouts "Close enough for gummint work."

Oh...Jason, Thanks for putting up the informative page. I sincerely appreciate the effort and agree it's high time for a simple introduction to the magical yellow syrup. Well done.

I'm not sure that I'm ready for "simplification", besides, who are you? Your the guy who left us hanging for video part three, the Polaroid print!

Reason: forget to put in the munching man with Koolaid mixed 1:51
Everytime I find a film or paper that I like, they discontinue it. - Paul Strand - Aperture monograph on Strand
Guilty as charged. (I guess it's not like Who Shot JR?) I'll get that up this week.
