    Anything Softer than Emaks? Graded or VC?

    Of four papers I tested Emaks was the least contrasty;
    an easy Grade one from Grade two using the low contrast
    developer Beer's 1. I could use an even lower contrast paper
    but Grade one is no longer available. Another Graded paper
    or even a VC which prints very soft with no filtration
    would help. Any suggestions? Dan

    I don't know how it compares to Beers 1, but you might try Emaks in amidol with a waterbath, which is what I do to get a softer grade with Emaks. Since you have Beers 1 on hand you could also try that with a waterbath, but waterbath development tends to work better with amidol than with other developers with emulsions that benefit from amidol.
