I use a Multigrade head and VC paper. I try and find the correct time for the highlights in the print at grade 2 or 2.5 and make a print. I then look at the print and decide if if needs more or less contrast. I then make another print at the new contrast. The Multigrade head is nice because the exposure times really do not move much as you change grades. My method wastes some paper, but it works very well.
