Mix the lot up and place it in 1 litre pop bottles with the air squeezed out. It's not a long term solution but it may give you a 2-3 year buffer.
yeah why IS that. I've always thought that working solutions would go belly up first, but I have a year old RA4 dev solution that actually works just fine where the concentrates I mixed it from have long since given up the ghost. Black part B, mixed up another litre, wouldn't put a dent on a test strip.

Anyhow, back on topic (sorta), why aren't the fuji hunt C-41 and E6 kits available in the US ? They're top-notch.
