    I've used HC-110 syrup that was dark and it seems to resist oxidation. I don't think it matters if you combine the bottles or not. I don't know if other APUGers have the same experience. I wonder if it's the glycerin in the developer that makes it so robust?

    HC-110 isn't particularly susceptible to oxidation or other degradation from exposure to air. It is susceptible, however to degradation from exposure to water.

    No, it isn't a licensed business, and it isn't a commercial lab of any sort. And it probably pales compared to what some here have.

    You missed the point I was making. I was expecting someone to say that his darkroom wasn't a lab and therefore a lab rule made no sense for him. There are some on APUG who revel in not being professional in their manner. It is a badge of honor to them.

    Well, I'm not proud, but my darkroom/lab is no more than a spare bathroom sink at this time. That's why I need to tidy up and reclaim some space.

    I think I'll leave well enough alone and simply start shooting more black and white to use it up faster ! Lord knows I've got a fridge/freezer full of the stuff.

    I normally label all my chemicals with the approximate date of acquisition and expiration, but my HC110 is labeled only "immortal".

    I think mixing them will be fine.
    f/22 and be there.

    Bill:

    Try an experiment. If you usually use 6 ml of concentrate per roll (12 ml for two) try mixing 6 ml from each bottle and develop two rolls.

    If they both come out well, go for it!

    At most, one more than if you mix the two bottles together, and the resulting mixture doesn't develop your film correctly.

    Look, since posters have so many reservations about year-and-a-half old HC-110, why don't you just send the bottles to me?

    Just don't worry about it, and use them. Together. Separately. Whatever. They will work fine.

    That's why I said not to mix them in the first place.
