I agree that AGFA chemicals (industrial grades are not that different from the professional/amateuer versions) are less critical in delivering good results. However, the best way to keep track of the processes are still control stips. You'll need a color densitometer and process control stips to keep track of your processes. You may find older Color Densitometers, like the Mcbeth TDxxx-Series, on Ebay for a bargain. AGFA (Kodak and Fuji as well) has a book with detailed instructions what might be the cause for which deviations from the set points.
I did not understood, what your problem with temperature acutally is/was.
