From what I've read, the concentrate is quite long-lasting - I just need to know if the same is true of RS after the packet is added. Mixing as needed sounds like a good route for me to take, considering my low-volume of B&W film.

I'm slowly acquiring film and chemicals to try some things out in 35mm, so I've got some time. A recent Bronica acquisition has slowed me down a bit .
developer is cheap, time and effort exposing film can be priceless ... seeing time doesn't repeat itself ...
why risk ruining your film ...

if the developer consists of part a and part b and you don't plan on using part b ?
why use the developer at all ?

its like using xtol, but not mixing the 2 pouches together ..

don't forget if you poke a hole into the little pouch and only use a little at a time
because you don't want to risk the long life of the developer ( if mixed together )
you will probably kill the small pouch between development sessions ...
