    Got my bulk roll of unperforated Kodak Gen 2 (Portra 160NC) today. Loaded a test section (not even a full roll) into a 126 cartridge and put it in the Kodak Instamatic 500 for some tests. Shot through it, then warmed up the Tetenal 1L kit and souped it. Still drying but the color looks good! I will load another cartridge and take some better shots soon. 100' should keep me in business for a while, hopefully the Tetenal will last... then I've got a second kit to mix.

    Put two test rolls of the Kodak Gen 2 S016 (Portra 160NC) through this weekend and a roll of Superia 800 135-24 as well and the Tetenal still looks good. The first test roll I thought I was having some blix issues but in my impatience my pre-soak and wash water was too hot, perhap 45C or more and apparently the emulsion couldn't take it. I did the Superia 800 and the second unperforated Portra 160NC roll through with precise temperature control and both turned out great.

    I'm getting ready to process my first roll (120 Fujicolor Pro160S) and I want to make sure that after the stabilizer it's a good idea to rinse once in FotoFlow, right? Then just hang and dry.

    Huh?

    Your film should be fine, though.

    I had my cap on the lid for inversions and apparently it's tighter than the lid itself. Lesson learned, though.

    Negs look ok so far - a bit milky, but that's to be expected as I understand and will clear upon drying.

    BTW - this is the Unicolor kit from Freestyle, which is rebranded Tetenal, according to Harry.

    No! Don't rinse after the stabilizer! It contains fotoflo already so there is no need.

    Too late! Noted for next roll. (Or should I re-stabilize it?)

    That is weird. I have never had anything like that happen with my bleach or fixer. Perhaps it is the combination of the two.

    If they are milky, then they are not OK. I've never seen milky color film unless it was improperly fixed. I'd blix them as long as you need to to clear that away. Rewash, then re-stabilize.

    If you washed after the stab, you can restabilize the film just to be sure.

    Milkiness is perfectly normal in wet color film, but once it's dry it should be very clear.
