    ID-11 or D-76 might be a better choice the next time around. D-76, at least in the US, is dirt cheap, costing maybe $6 - $7 US retail to make 3.8L of stock solution. ID-11 is functionally identical to D-76 and both are capable of producing extremely high quality negatives. What makes D-76 so attractive is the wealth of documentation, both official and anecdotal, for this developer and just about any B&W film you can think of. It is a de-facto standard developer against which all others are compared.
    thanks for all your help everyone....I think D-76 is the kind of developer im looking for as an all-rounder....

    I use ID11 in my CombiPlan for HP5 film.

    I make up ID11 from 5L packets and then use 500ml for ID11 with 550ml of water.

    I started with the processing times from the Ilford Data Sheet and adjusted my film exposure and develoing times from there so suit my personal choice.

    ID-11, and D-76 are powder developers, as well as Xtol is a powder developer. You need to mix up the whole lot of powder to get uniformity in your stock solution. The issue could be are the individual powder components in the bag evenly distributed throughout the powder? Impossible to tell, therefore you avoid this connundrum by mixing up the whole bag.

    Probably the most popular liquid all-purpose film developer is Kodak HC-110 which comes as a syrup and you can mix up very small amounts of working solution from the syrup. The directions for this are not on the bottle, but are on Kodaks web site on the technical data sheet for this developer. It gives similar results to D-76 for most people. HC-110 syrup is almost eternal in shelf life.
