BTW, the Anchell and Troop Film Developer's Cookbook has formulas for developers and their replenishers.
Edwal 12 works as its own replenishing solution too. I've kept a batch running for a few years, and it has been a remarkably stable and consistent developer.
Metol, Sodium Sulfite, Paraphenyline Diamine (PPD), and Glycin. Works a charm.
