    I bought three 1L Photographer's Formulary plastic bottles to store the three solutions.

    Yes, I pour the working solutions back into the RIGHT bottle after each run; don't get them mixed up!

    I use hot tap water in a 4L Rubbermade tub to get the dev and blix to 39C and store 4L of 39C water aside for the 1min presoak and wash. Stab stays at room temp.

    I store the chems in a cold cellar when I won't use them for a while.

    Freestyle has the 1L kit for $18, B&H has it for $20. 23 rolls so far is $0.78-$0.86/roll and I'm still using it so the per roll cost is still falling

    Roll 24 (I think) done on the same 1L Tetenal chems, another roll of Fuji Reala 120, shot in the Yashicaflex this time. Still drying but looks good, the right color base and the colors look good in reverse. I clip tested beforehand again and it looked good so I went ahead. One of these days it will catch up with me and the clip test won't really mean I can do a whole roll but so far, so good.

    Will scan them tomorrow and, Purolator willing, print them this week! I should have a 5"x575' roll of Kodak Ektacolor and a package of Fuji Crystal Archive II 8x10" paper to go along with my Kodak 10L RA-4 chems. Then I can play the how long do Kodak RA-4 working solutions last game in addition to the JOBO/Tetenal game.

    Pretty cool Harry. Maybe you can post a scan of one of your prints when you have them?

    The paper is waiting for me! I will pick it up later. I will certainly post print scans.

    Real optical RA-4 prints, I'm in heaven! Labs haven't done these around here for years, just digital prints; even if they are wet RA-4 prints they aren't optically enlarged, they're scan & print which is just yuck IMO.

    So happy... I will still be playing with color balance and different papers. I have Kodak Supra, Endra and Fuji Crystal Archive II but so far I've just been experimenting with the Endura Professional, wonderful paper even a couple years expired.

    OK, I finally got around to my second and third rolls of C-41 tonight, this time Portra 160 NC. Both rolls have crud on them that look like water spots. This didn't happen on my first roll when I inadvertently rinsed with Photo Flo prior to hanging. Can I rerinse the negs again? Might Photo Flow have prevented this the first time? I've never seen this with my B&W negs and I processed a roll of HP5+ in Rodinal earlier today, so I don't think it's my water.

    Unicolor works well too

    I had a bottle on the shelf from a Unicolor kit I mixed in August of 09, never opened after mixing, full except for a small bubble of air. I would never attempt this with serious shots, so I went for a walk and shot a couple of rolls of Gold 200. One I developed with the 20 month old Unicolor kit, and the other I took to Costco. You might not believe it but there wasn't a lot of difference. The Costco roll was slightly denser but I am sure I could get good enlargements from either. I also did this when the kit was 13 months old and got excellent results. The developer and blix are perfectly clear with no sludge or precipitate. I wish RA-4 lasted like this. A couple of weeks and its a mess. I'm not suggesting anyone try this, it was a test just for grins. It makes me wonder why C-41 lasts so much longer than RA-4 (Arista kit).
    Also, I was pleased with the development at Costco. Looks good and cost less than $2. Wow, I can't compete with that! From now on I will develop 120 only, and I'll let Costco do the 35mm.

    24 rolls is what I got from my last 1L JOBO/Tetenal kit. I shot a couple rolls of Ektar and went to process them this morning but clip tested first and the clip came out nearly blank so it was obvious that the developer was shot. Thus I mixed up a new 1L JOBO/Tetenal Press Kit and developed the two rolls of Ektar 120. They're still drying, might be dry by now... but from the negs they look great! I'll scan them soon and will print some RA-4 tonight if I'm still awake after my guests go home.
