    I think you can buy stabilizer/final rinse by itself from the Photographer's Formulary.

    What a confusing kit. They give you:
    50ml Part A
    50ml Part B, but
    65ml Part C.

    I caught myself before I poured it all, but I'm sure I poured more than the prescribed 50ml.

    What's the risk?

    My Fuji kit is nearly done so I'm looking at getting the 5L (100-roll) Rollei kit from Maco. Got some questions though:
    - does anyone here use it replenished?
    - does anyone have a scan of the manual they could post?
    - Part C life is quoted as 2-3 years. Is that total life or life after opening?

    Reason for the latter question is that I have loads of leftover bleach+fix from my two Fuji kits so I was going to get an extra litre of each of the developer parts (~200 rolls worth) to use that up. I want to make sure that the part C doesn't die on the shelf before I even open the bottle. And buying it all at once saves me about $80 in shipping...

    As I understand things the manual as written has several bits missing. If you look at much earlier posts you will see what these are( I can't remember) and be able to complete the full process.

    Bits missing would not be something surprising with Maco. But as we had a recent discussion on an erroneous Tetenal manual, maybe we must not be over-demanding these days...

    Yes, I found that 2-page flyer in the product listing. I was hoping for detailed instructions though that would tell me replenishment rates, not just capacity for a batch, and/or time-extension tables for use when running a batch to exhaustion instead of replenishing. Obviously I could use (replenishment rate = batch size / nominal capacity = 50mL/roll) but that invites over-replenishment because capacity with replenishment should be better than capacity by run-to-exhaustion. And I don't have the C41 control strips etc to determine whether I've gone wrong and am running too-thick soup.

    The Rollei kit isn't Fuji chemistry, or at least it's not the same chemistry as in the Fuji Press kit though I could believe it's Fuji minilab soup. The Fuji kit has no separate starter (I presume it's mixed in with one of the dev components or omitted entirely) and provides a time-extension table with 5 steps over the life of a working-solution. And the Fuji concentrate ratios are unequal whereas the Rollei uses equal parts A/B/C. Of course, the Rollei parts could have been made by diluting the Fuji parts into larger quantities.

    Missing wash steps in the instructions are well-complained-about here, so no problems with that.

    In the regular Rollei Digibase C41 kits the lifespan of part C is about one year in concentrate. The Rollei Digibase C41 manual is complete except that in case of re-use you have to wash with destilled water between the steps.
    When using a Jobo rotary processor with elevator the whole process is very easy to do with a small volume of C41 chemicals. Rollei Digibase C41 is a small Fuji Hunt mini-lab C41 version from Belgium and even when doing not so many films it is a good solution for DIY C41 film development.

    That one year - is that one year from manufacture or one year from opening?

    Rollei Digibase C-41 colour chemicals are also sold as single separate baths, so maybe - if one finds them - the better solution to long-term conservation problems is to buy only the baths which are needed instead of buying a new kit any time.

    The only shop I know so far which sells these chemicals as single baths is General Photo http://www.generalphoto.biz in Germany.

    The important news is that the single bath are sold by the factory. Maybe you can ask Rollei about sellers in that part of the planet.
