The effect of PG on development-speed is interesting. Here are the times for D316 with TMY2:

Direct to water with No PG ......... 13 min (i.e., the formula I posted 3 postings ago)
Direct to water with PG ............. 13.75 min
PG-based concentrate ............... 12 min

So adding PG to water slows development, but when the PG is in a concentrate, it accelerates development. Weird, isn't it?
