I was not suggesting replacing HQ with ascorbic acid in any formula. I've stated many times on here I do not believe in simple substitution formulas. Once something is changed, the entire formula needs to be looked at and possibly rebalanced, or scrapped.

Bob - the formula Gerald posted for the Haist version of D76 (D-76H) is correct. The formula is the same as D-76 except the HQ is eliminated and the Metol is increased to 2.5g. Image characteristics are said to be virtually identical. As for its capacity compared to regular D-76, I cannot say.
