    Add 1/2 tsp of EDTA to each liter of water you use for making up developer stock solution.
    That won't do anything if the cause is over-saturation, only if other minerals are in the water.

    I just went back and re-read (er, read correctly) the original post - "but big flippin' chunks almost the size of my fist (sounds like) banging around in the jug."

    You are right - EDTA isn't going to do anything to help with this problem.

    If, however, the OP has fists of a size appropriate for a medium size ant, then EDTA might help...

    I've never seen a Divided D-76 that I recall that asked for that.
    I've tried a 6% solution and had large crystals form, plates IIRC.
    Also, IIRC, room temperature saturation is 5 + %. Again, IIRC,
    crystal formation can initiate a complete precipitation of a
    solute. May be a 6 gram per liter one-shot would do. Dan
