Thanks for the flattery rubyfalls only joking!

Well I just bought an aparently mint Schneider Companon-S 50mm f2.8 enlarger lens and I'm almost ready to go.

I just have to get some fresh paper developer and hopefully the 1996 photographic paper is OK but I'll know when I try it/test it.

I was thinking of trying a powder developer like Kodak Dektol or should I stick to Ilford?

I'd like something that will keep a good while and not 3 months after opening as I may not get much printing done in the near future.
