    On a slightly unrelated subject (tangential to the "triple-weight") - does anyone make single-weight FB paper anymore? Back in the beginning, paper was a lot thinner than today - most albumen prints were made on paper no thicker than modern copy paper.

    when I started with darkroom work I used AGFA Brovira in single weight only. Now it seems all makers want to sell cardboard, which is a lot more difficult to get flat! I want an emulsion like Forte polywarmtone - or Fortezo Museum - but on half-weight paper!

    Kentmere might. Some of their paper feels lightweight in comparison with others they make.

    That is just one of the reasons I like Azo!

    I like the tone of Agfa Multicontrast Classic FB paper. It's not Forte but it is an "ivory" colour. And while the future is questionable, it is currently easy to find.
    Sorry can't help you with the Forte.
