As to my memory, well It's not what it was, but I find it's still better than average.
Jason, I took Ron's emulsion making 101 in January 2011 and have been rummaging around ever since. I had some trouble in Late 2011 and early 2012 (divorce and two eye operations) and dropped out of sight for awhile but I'm back, healthier and happier than ever. Since I tend to photograph in the warmer months then cocoon in the darkroom in the colder. . . .
As to the emulsion, I'm starting from the basics again (AZO) and it's coming back to me quickly, but reading this thread I was confused (natural state) and thought I'd ask. Then on to Ron's book before the workshop at GEH.
All the best,
