Does anybody want to part from his or her Book Of Pyro? Please let me now. I'll be forever grateful...
Groeten uit Deventer,

The Darkroom Cookbook lists it. The Film Development book gives a bigger write up, with a few pages straight from the Book of Pyro. I have never read the Bible of Pyro, but use the info from these two books to get fine results.
I have never got the full ammount of K to dissolbe in the B solution; I just shake vigoursly to get all the sediment into suspension, then syringe off the required amount.
I know that A to water then B should go from green to pale brown, and it did when fresh, but know 6 months since mixing the A stock and B stock it doesn't any more, yet the develper still seems to work well for me.
Pay heed to the warnings about staining, and wearing gloves. The only thing that I ever saw stained worse was EP/2 exhausted devloper tar, but it wasn't known to be as nasty as Pyro.
