You can play around and waste paper, but you really are looking for a Metol agent developer. The mix is very easy , if Ian pumps in I think it maybe very close to the Selectol Soft developer...

IMO mix from Mr Jollys great formulas and you will have fun and not need the round paper basket as much.

The only paper developers I have handy are Dektol and Ilford Warm Tone.
