    kevin, try Masa paper it's perfect for all iron / iron-silver processes and it's cheap too. (Something like USD 1.2 - 1.3 per 21x31" sheet... I remember the times when it was only USD 0.7/sheet.)
    Loris, do you coat the smoothest side or the slightly rough side?

    I use "Bristol" papers, when I want smooth. Bristol paper comes in various weights and brands, just make sure not to use the very heavy variants, as they basically are multiple layers glued together (like passepartouts), which get separated in long water baths.

    The brand my art shop sells makes single layered Bristol paper up to 495g/m².

    However, it's usually buffered, so an acid treatment is recommended to get the best possible Dmax.

    kevin, both sides are usable, I personally prefer the smooth side.
