Well, I finally processed my first roll of 5222. I just followed the MDC @ started with Adonal @ 1+50 for 11 mins

From first glance the contrast is better then I was hoping (I was expecting it to be on the flat side), but I have yet to check out the grain (grain doesn't scare me. Actually, I want grain!)

Just a quick one - I didn't pre-wash and noticed the dev was very purple when I tipped it out. Is there any benefit of pre-washing this film?
