I have the fresh clearing time...always do that with new fixer. The fixer isn't yellow at all...or at least that I can tell. Only fixing with one bath at the present time. Two baths take up valuable darkroom(bathroom) space that I don't have. I'm going to go ahead and use it this evening when i get home. I guess I'll find out if its still good in about 10 years or so when the print starts to yellow and fade....lol.
