    I use the Ilford chemicals -Ilfosol 3 for developing and Rapid Fix for fix, and I just use water for my stop - 2 - 45 sec baths. As for times, if you peel the label on the chemical bottle, there's a list of time and temps to go by. Plus a really useful website is digitaltruth.com and go to the massive dev chart. It has all different film stocks with different developers and gives the developing times. Quite useful.

    While a stop bath is optional, I would recommend it if you plan on using your fixer to capacity. It will prevent carry over of any developer into the fixer and extend its life. It can also improve process consistency as development will continue during the rinse, albeit at a reduced rate. But, as always, YMMV!

    I second Polyglot, his FAQ link seems to be pretty awesome, just by skimming over it. It might answer a lot of your questions before you can even think of them Definitely check it out.
    Polyglot, great idea.
