    There is no need to filter it when decanting. Any undissolved bit will go into solution if you dilute 1+1 just before use. If used straight up, nothing will be stuck to your film after stop, fix and wash anyway, so it's not a problem.

    There is another trick, filter the fresh solution before use, this ensures that no undissolved crystals are present in the solution.

    My understanding is that the use of a borax-boric acid buffer instead of plain borax would eliminate the initial pH jump. If we're talking about D-76 from Kodak or ID-11 from Ilford, the waiting period should not be necessary. Has anyone actually seen the result of using home-brewed D-76 too soon? If I were to test this idea, I would shoot a test roll, develop half in fresh D-76 and the rest after 24 hours.

    I usually leave it for a couple of hours after mixing to let it cool to usable temperature and I've not noticed any differnce between films processed in 'new' developer and that which has been mixed a couple of weeks - unless I'm not being observant enough!
