    It lith prints quite well too.

    This formula indicates 1g Hydroquinone and the Cookbook's formula calls for 11g. Is this a typo?

    Yes, poor attempt on my part to line the numbers up! Corrected now!

    I bought a new box of this paper about a month ago and have not used it yet.

    I am planning on using it with ilford warm tone developer.

    I'll let you all know.

    One question though....is this a true double weight paper?

    According to the included fact sheet it is double weight.

    I find that Fineprint VC is a fairly good substitute for Forte Polygrade V.

    I started using it to replace Kodak Polymax and continued happily. I use Ilford Multigrade developer with it.

    Ditto.

    I assume that the Ilford Selenium toner is the same concentration as KRST. So 1:10 for 5 minutes (at room temp) would result in a very reddish print in my darkroom. Is that what you are getting?

    I use KRST at 1:17 for 2:45 - 3:00 which is just before it switches to eggplant. That is long enough to remove the green and significantly increase Dmax to my eye. I use Zone VI developer 1:3.

    I agree that it dries flat like Polymax did. I still flatten in a dry mount press after the print dries though.

    It seems sad that everyone is looking for the next Forte Polywarmtone but I don't think it is out there. Maybe the new Adox paper will come through.
