    Am I replenishing my Flexicolor correctly?

    Normally I just mix up fresh stuff as I've got so damn much of it.

    Anyway.

    To replenish you add x mL of replenisher counted up from whatever you've processed, I've got that part fine.

    So when I mix up 1 litre of fresh dev, dividing down the amounts I had noted after measuring the bottles, it goes something like this.

    Start with ~700 mL, add some part A, mix, add some part B, mix, add some part C, mix.

    Now that comes out to be about ~768 mL iirc or so.


    Then it's watered up to 1 litre, and then you add the starter.


    Now is my replenisher the 1 litre amount sans starter, or the ~768 mL amount.



    I've been using the 1 litre amount sans starter as replenisher over the last few rolls, following the Kodak instructions on how much mL per type of film, size, and length etc.

    Should I be using the ~768 mL amount as replenisher? I don't think it is, seems illogical, but I wanted to make sure.

    I use Trebla chems and the replenisher is "thicker" than the freshly made working developer (with starter topped up to 1 liter).

    What I'm saying is that it sounds right to me.
