    Caffenol - C revisited

    A while ago I tested adding 4 g/l of vitamin C to caffenol, reported my findings as not so pleasing initially. The stain dimisinhes and the image looked awfully thin.

    BUT, after trying to print the negatives I was pleasantly surprised, it was very easy to print the images (despite long times due to stain), and the low contrast was no problem, tonality was long and soft.
    Sharpness was a bit better than standard caffenol.

    For Mr King with tongue in cheek.

    If I drink strong coffee follwed by orange juice will a better quality of pee result? Since agitation and temperature are important can I develop negatives directly from the stream? Does doing so while being pissed off shorten tne develpment time? Is my old prostrate going to prove to be a liability? For all the fellows out there is this a method for stand developing?
    Should the ladies consider getting their feet wet with this method?

    Accually someone made a developer formulated from Urine. Human urine contains small amounts of Pyrocatchenol. So it might , coffee and pee, work.

    No, ascerbic acid has been shown to have damaging influence on all development.

    Coffee/ Ascorbic Acid Print Developer

    In case anyone is interested I have been playing around with coffee for a print developer. I kind of blended Gainer's Ascorbic Acid developer with coffee to get pretty good results. Basically it improves the develop rate compared to just using coffee and helps to preserve the solution a bit longer. The end result is pretty good with some warm tones in the greys. Here is an article with more details.

    You basically ended up with a conventional phenidone/vitamin C (PC) developer plus coffee. You might want to consider E-72 instead; it's fairly simple (five ingredients, including water) and it's lasted me through multi-hour sessions. I've also used DS-14 with good results. It's more complex, though.

    I've also heard about developers fropm tree bark / nut galls (Gallic acid or tannic acid, I'm assuming).

    Does anyone know how to make one of these?
