    what bleach?

    At first I tried using a ferricyanide bleach,but it really messed up the films, then I received a persulfate/hydroquinone bleach formula from a fellow APUG member.
    It works fine, but it's not as pleasant to me as the Kodak stuff

    Rob,
    Thanks for that reply.
    Considering the current situation with scoring bleach I'm always interested in what people are doing to solve the issue.

    Hi Rob,

    Great to hear there is some alternative bleach that works. Can you post the formula?

I think they spent twenty minutes hunting down the various bottles on my list , and they were actually happy to do it. I do believe they ship as well
    They are also open on Saturday

    I ended up collecting everything but the bleach, as it cost as much as the rest of the kit, and ended up using an alternative one instead . Mixing is a pain because you have to make stock solutions from the bottles and then use those to make the actual working solutions. Thing is you end up with 1,140 ml of a couple of stock solutions, and it's like gee,couldn't you guys figure out how to make it come out to an even liter.
    I actually worked out a chart that did just that

    Is you're list the one posted on APUG recently? Anyone remember where that was? In this thread?

    I just email them to get verification that they'll ship the stuff. I'll let everyone know hat I hear.

    At one point I hear that The Photographers Formulary was repacking Kodak C-41 chemistry into smaller sizes. Perhaps they will do the same for E-6 if there are enough requests to do so. I am not in the market to buy such kits now as I send my E-6 to the lab. But if any of you are contact PF and see what they say.

    Preparing small batches of E-6 chemistry

    So count another frustrated home E6 developer. I just will never get over the thrill of looking at medium and large format transparency film on a lightbox--files on a computer screen just aren't the same.

    Here's some helpful information from Kodak's publications, you really have to look, though.

    from Kodak pub J-83, page 8:
    If you use the one-gallon-size chemicals, mix the solutions for rotary-tube processors according to the instructions packaged with the chemicals. No starter is required for the first developer, color developer, or bleach. Use the reversal bath at 60 percent of the normal concentration (i.e., dilute the concentrate to make 1.6 gallons).
    So 1 gal kits don't need any starter. Does this mean that larger bottles mixed as batches smaller than 1 gal also don't need starters? Of course, you'd need a way to preserve and store the extra chemicals, particularly the first and color developers, which are very prone to oxidation.

    Mixing quantities we can find here, in CIS-49, Preparing Smaller-Than-Package-Size Amounts of KODAK Processing Chemicals, page 3, which gives amounts for mixing 1L batches. The 5 liter kit recommended mixing a minimum of 250ml at a time.

    So... what are recommendations for E-6 chemistry for home-use? I'm in the United States. I can't find anyone selling Tetenal kits online. The only ones I've found are the Arista kits, but no one can confirm if it has a stabilizer.

    Damn you, Kodak. I'm *just* starting E-6 and I will never know the joys of your 5L kit.
