If you want something like that, you might want to make up some PC-TEA. Simple to make, lasts at least 5 years, and (for me at least) seems to have a combination of the best bits of Rodinal and Xtol. Like Rodinal, it can turn from a pale straw colour to dark tea, and still works the same. Like Xtol, it gets good film speed and shadow detail, with little grain.

Oh, the Vitamin C goes in when the concentrate, so no need to add any later
