Good point, and that's kind of my thoughts. I'm still going to put it in a wine bladder to be safe and I feel like drinking 5 liters of wine. You can usually smell mayonaise and tell if it's bad but Xtol just goes bad with no indication. Though simple film strip tests can help check for it.
So I guess the point is you're right, Xtol's no big deal and I just ordered some.
Anyone else have any comments on 1600 with xtol or other developers?
