I thought that too but I developed some Classic 200 in the same developer and had no problems. Bergger may work for normal contrast scenes but for scenes that require expansion it really sucks big time. Normally a film would be developed at 1-1-100 for enlarging...I was developing at the mixture that would be used for contact printing on Azo and it wouldn't get to a decent negative for enlarging. For a negative that requires expansion or a higher density range, my experience is that it doesn't come close.
