I use FA1027 time to time, like Thomas. This is a very good developer for classic grain films. In higher dilution will work well with T-grain and it is better at that than D76.
Yup, you are right! One of the reasons(actually two reasons) I went this way was it's suppose to be a little safer developer and I heard it is similar to Ilfords DDX, which I really liked. Some would probably say if you liked Ilford DDX then just buy that. Well, the difference in the price has a way of pushing me in the direction of Arista Premium liquid/Clayton F76+. Pocket change doesn't come easy nowadays.
