I used Pyrocat HD for all my sheet film from 2004 to 2009 and off and on since then. I've mixed my own except for one Glycol based batch I bought from PF. I've never had a problem with the developer and found that it indeed changes from clear to a light sepia when mixing the working solution just as Steve describes.
