I'm very impressed at the fact that you are really only 1min30sec off from the calculated 3 hours. It sounds quite incredible (at least to an amateur like me) and kind of proves your theory. So, congratulations! Thanks for sharing this experience, and we'll be waiting for any progress in this field.
Can you elaborate a bit why wouldn't smaller runs work? Is it just a problem with equipment (peristaltic pumps that need certain minimum volume), or is there some more fundamental reason in the precipitation/ripening of silver halides in the emulsion itself? I still believe that stepper-motor controlled syringes could be used to feed exact and small volumes of liquids instead of peristaltic pumps, but that would need quite a bit of engineering.
How foggy is it, can you get a picture at all?
