fyi, I finally returned from my trip, and had a chance this past weekend to mix up 200ml of chemistry from the Rollei 2.5L kit I got from Freestyle as a replacement for the defective 1L kit, as well as 200ml from a fresh Fuji E-6 6 bath kit. I took some test photos outside with a roll of Ektar 100, and Fuji Velvia 100 (both 120 format). Processed each in its respective chemistry in the Jobo CPE+, and after scanning the Ektar roll, have confirmed that everything is now working flawlessly. Should be an exciting weekend coming up - 20 rolls of slide & neg to process from vacation.
