Way too expensive.
    If you want a chocolate tone on other responsive papers try lower dilutions (higher concentrations) of brown toner for a shorter period. Hit the print hard and fast (10-30s), rinse for a few minutes, and then into HCA.
    Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.

    Did you want milk or dark chocolate hues?

    I am joking of course, but the answer does matter...

    I like a dark chocolate on some prints that doesn't go too far into the yellow. And concerning the OP's initial questions about wt developers, in my limited experience I've found the tonal differences to be very subtle among varying developers.
