100g/l = 10% solution

200g/l = 20% solution ... and so on, up to the solubility limit of KBr in water I presume.

SO, when I am making up a litre of developer that requires 1g of KBr per litre, I would substitute 100ml of a 10% solution for 100ml of the total volume of water required by the formula ?

(I imagine a lot of sighing, eye rolling and shaking of heads from all the scientificky types at this point)
