I think the problem is your very expired film stock. I use film (Kodak Vision, Fuji Eterna), not older than 5 years and there is no grain, no fog and no color cast.
But if your process works for you, it is okay.
On the other side, ECN-2 film stock is mostly offered so cheap that it is not worth to use bad film.
