Chuck: I use the stop bath immediately after CD for 1.5 minutes, then a 30 sec wash, then on to bleach per instructions. I have not tried your suggestion, but the though that comes to mind is that using a wash between CD and stop bath risks further development. My negatives have been coming out very consistent and very since I added the stop bath to my process. I forgot about slide film for a couple of weeks!
