    Just for a record: I made another batch of Tetenal e6. From a stock bought same time with previous.


    No problems. 7:00 first dev gave really nice densities (Fuji Sensia), just as it should!

    After all there was something wrong with my another Tetenal kit. I don't know should I dump it or try to increase dev time +20% or so to compensate dark results?

    Unless you are willing to do many experiments with test clips, you'd better dump the bad chems. E6 first dev is not just some b&w dev, it's a carefully designed and balanced soup which makes sure all three color layers are developed correctly. Even if you achieve proper overall density in your slides with longer dev times, there is no reason why just by coincidence the colors should all be correct.

    Look at the chrome brew thread started by stefan4u about E6 home brewing. From reading it I conclude that FD and CD are nontrivial soups.

    Is the tetenal E6 still available in other countries? I sure can't find it in the USA.

    It's use is probably very similar to other 3 bath kits.

    The only one I can find in the USA is arista.

    Does anyone know the quality of the arista kit's? How close are they to kodak's original?

    I found the link to the arista E6 kit: http://www.freestylephoto.biz/pdf/ms..._rapid_e_6.pdf

    Seems to me that they are able to omit a lot of stuff.

    thanks
