    That's about it. A penta formula usually runs 240 grams
    per liter; an anhydrous formula 150. Those are the
    one-size-fits-all formulas. Well not quite all. Dan

    multiply by 0.64
    Alas, I was off by 9%. I think I need to get my envelope calibrated.

    One choice is the water's temperature when preparing the
    fixer. As dilute as that fixer is, room temperature will do unless
    you are in a reel hurry. 125 F degrees is another of those
    ubiquitous one-size-fits-all directions. Dan

    I've been using 2/3 cup sodium thiosulfate penta per 2l of warm water. I then let it cool to room temperature for use. That seems to be working OK. It's just my developing time that needs fine tuning!
