    Yes the Midi is the 1 liter kit. When you get ready to mix your chems, please report back if Dev part C is purple or yellow. I dont suggest you open it before you are ready to mix your chems as Sebastian indicates it oxidizes fast.

    I knew about the Part C volatility from a posting by Photo Engineer a while back, so it is to be expected with open concentrates. But sealed, the shelf life should be at least the 2 - 3 years indicated by Sebastian. Freestyle gave me a credit for the one remaining kit that I can no longer use, and I decided to apply it toward a Maxi kit since I will need it when I return from vacation next month. According to the rep I spoke with, the issue was only with the Midi kits, and they have sent their remaining stock back to the manufacturer.

    Does anyone have any idea how long the Part C is good for once it's opened? Sebastian's post above seems to say 2-3 years, but are you saying that's 2-3 years until opened?

    I don't know how long it is completely good for, but I mixed a partial batch last September then mixed new chems from the same concentrates this past May. I kept them in the fridge tightly closed. I'm getting good results from my current batch of chems.

    That's great to hear....I was thinking of getting the Maxi kit next time I ordered.

    Hmm... maybe I'll try putting the Part C in the fridge this time around too. I can re-use the Midi bottles to subdivide the larger amount of concentrate which will hopefully keep out enough oxygen to prolong its life.

    With the replacement kits, are people planning to keep using what they had on the bleach, fix and stabilizer side or just junk the whole kit? I guess the only thing that's really bad is the Part C, everything else should be okay, right?

    Can one use glass beads or marbles to displace air from unused Part C?

    Yeah, I'm keeping my bottles as well! Good call.
