The formula you quoted is for an earlier developer called D316. I changed it a little and am temporarily calling it 214D. Its formula is:

Propylene glycol ................. 12.2 g (same as 11.8 ml)
Sodium metaborate 4 mol ..... 1.8 g
Ascorbic acid ..................... 4.2 g
Dimezone S ....................... 0.08 g (or use 0.05 g of Phenidone)
A litre of developer contains 18 g (same as 15.4 ml) of concentrate and 45 g of sodium sulfite. pH is 8.08.

The times for this are posted four postings ago on this page (scroll up). If you decide to try it, please post your results. As I mentioned earlier, I plan to post an article about this concentrate after finishing testing.
