H. Your tests may vary, but you may find that 12 minutes is a tad too long. Maybe try 9 or 10 min. to start?

Then again, every time I have gone to someone else for developing advice I get more answers that I know what to do with. Good luck. I'm going to continue my tests so that when I make the inevitable switch to Ilford films I'll know what I'm doing.

EDIT: I should say that these 4x5 sheets were tank developed with five gentle inversions every thirty seconds after a first full minute of agitation at 68 degrees F.
Thanks Jonathan. I will be using way less agitation than that. I hope to use it as a compensating developer. Five invertions to start then two at four minutes and two at eight minutes. I think I will bracket the first film.
