Okay, and what about potassium hydroxide or the glycol?

Granted, it's all about proportion of chemicals to manipulate developer activity, but I think there's a bit more than that needed. On the flip-side, it appears Easylith is mostly HQ, glycol, and potassium carbonate.
Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.
