The way I do E6 is from Kodak except I use a quinone bleach ( I think you gave me the formula). It has the 1st dev then a 2min wash with water, reversal bath, color dev,prebleach,bleach,fix ,wash and then stabilizer with formalin. I was thinking of substituting a similar water rinse between the CD and the bleach especially if the prebleach is only taking the place of the formalin rinse at the end. I would like to keep it as simple as possible.
