    Was your greenish cast really that bad, then? I've used LPD 1:4 on Ilford MGWT, and haven't experienced anything like that. It would be a turn off, I agree!

    I use Edwal Platinum II w/ Ilford WtFB and Forte PW papers, I love this developer. Diluted 1:40. Great tones and detail.

    Alexis,

    I'm fairly sure Freestyle is selling Neutol, as they've picked up the other Agfa chems out there. Might want to give them a look-see.

    Will be shipping back chems, papers, films from Germany later this year.

    I like Ethol LPD, 1:4 to 1:6 is warm. 1:1 is blue black. Although i'd love to try another real warm-tone developer, ethol lpd keeps forever.

    Well it isn't listed in their catalog...at least the online version. Just got in an order and I'll see if they sent a hardcopy, then check in it.

    I mix my own Defender D-55 or Ansco 130 for printing with Forte PWT. The D-55 is a very clean developer, producing a good tonal range. However the Forte suffers the greenish cast in it. The Ansco is also very good, but expensive and the glycin can be somewhat tougher to dissolve. Since I tone all prints in Nelsons Gold Toner, the cast has not been a problem. However, I was wondering if the formulas for the Edwal, or Zonal Pro were available anywhere? I don't usually buy any chemistry off the shelf anymore, prefering to mix and tweak my own.

    Ansco 130 is worth trying because it has a very long tray life, something you mentioned as being important. I've not yet tried it with Forte papers (although I will soon), it is a beautiful developer with the Ilford and Agfa papers with which I've used it. Greater dilution results in softer contrast and a warmer tone.

    [QUOTE=To make 4 liters stock solution:

    Water (125f) 2 liters
    Metol 10 grams
    Sodium Sulfilte Anhy 150 grams
    Potassium Carbinate Anhy 200 grams
    Potassium Bromide 100 grams*
    Water to make 4 liters[/QUOTE]

    Any information on substituding Sodium Carbonate for the Potassium Carbonate? I'm thinking the sodium compound would be very similar, but would require a different dilution. I've got a lot of it here and could compare the developer against the original D-55 and the Ansco 135 formula. The 135 does a nice job with Forte papers and doesn't produce the green cast.
